For the most part this was a great book…..I did however have a really hard time getting into it.
I’m not sure what I expected but it wasn’t to follow the families from major Aubrey’s desicion to take one of the twins, and as the boys grew.
don’t get me wrong I thought it was cool I just wasn’t expecting it. I didn’t like however how it would skip ahead (it did it at least a couple times) when something was about to happen.

And the way it ended….I seriously hope the next book picks up soon after we left off and not with me characters.
It ended well enough but I need more lol

You can pre-order it, it’ll come out on April 21st

Here’s the synopsis
Synopsis

At the wood’s edge cultures collide. Can two families survive the impact? 
 
The 1757 New York frontier is home to the Oneida tribe and to British colonists, yet their feet rarely walk the same paths. 
 
On the day Fort William Henry falls, Major Reginald Aubrey is beside himself with grief. His son, born that day, has died in the arms of his sleeping wife. When Reginald comes across an Oneida mother with newborn twins, one white, one brown, he makes a choice that will haunt the lives of all involved. He steals the white baby and leaves his own child behind. Reginald’s wife and foundling daughter, Anna, never suspect the truth about the boy they call William, but Reginald is wracked by regret that only intensifies with time, as his secret spreads its devastating ripples. 
 
When the long buried truth comes to light, can an unlikely friendship forged at the wood’s edge provide a way forward? For a father tormented by fear of judgment, another by lust for vengeance. For a mother still grieving her lost child. For a brother who feels his twin’s absence, another unaware of his twin’s existence. And for Anna, who loves them both—Two Hawks, the mysterious Oneida boy she meets in secret, and William, her brother. As paths long divided collide, how will God direct the feet of those who follow Him?
