Hey Loves! How’s everyone’s week been?
Can you believe it’s already Friday?
With that being said, it’s time for First Line Fridays!
The book I’m featuring today is: Many Sparrows by Lori Benton
I’m currently reading this and I’m loving it! This story will grip the heart and take you on an unforgettable journey.
When settler Clare Inglesby is widowed on a mountain crossing and her young son, Jacob, captured by Shawnees, she’ll do everything in her power to get him back, including cross the Ohio River and march straight into the presence of her enemies deep in Indian country. Frontiersman and adopted Shawnee, Jeremiah Ring, promises to guide Clare through the wilderness and help her recover Jacob.
Once they reach the Shawnees and discover Jeremiah’s own Shawnee sister, Rain Crow, has taken custody of Jacob–renaming him Many Sparrows–keeping his promise becomes far more complicated, the consequences more wrenching, than Jeremiah could have foreseen.
And the first line is:
May 1, 1774
Ohio River Near Yellow Creek
Jeremiah Ring had witnessed death as often as the next man on the Allegheny frontier, but in all his thirty years he he had encountered no deaths more dismaying than thos confronting him now.
