Straight Flies the Arrow

 About the Book

Name of book: Straight Flies the Arrow
Author: Sydney Tooman Betts
Genre: Historical, adventure, Romance
Release Date: July 8, 2017
During the winter of 1841, Pacing Wolf, the esteemed leader of the Many Lodges, follows the trail of a brutal murderer, leaving behind his beloved woman, Small Doe. When his tracking party returns without him, the Sparrow Hawks’ Real Chief pronounces him dead, insisting Small Doe grieve, but she cannot bring herself to give up hope her husband will return. The coming spring offers her few choices. She can accept the courageous new warrior chosen for her or risk falling prey to his war-society rivals.
Vengeance and loyalty, hatred and faithfulness, all vie within two enemy villages, one belonging to the Sparrow Hawks and the other the Allies, threatening to crush every hope of happiness for Small Doe and everyone she loves.
MY THOUGHTS:
I loved, loved this book. I did read the first 3 in this series and I loved, loved them as well. It is refreshing to read books about the different tribes of American Indians and from their perspectives. I truly enjoyed that, as I finished each book, I was reaching for the next one. I love the characters and how it addresses how hard it was for them to trust each other, to acknowledge life how they knew it was gone and their struggles to adapts to new ways. A book you will truly enjoy.
Blessings,
