Review: Burning Sky

For her first novel, Lori Benton's "Burning Sky" shows an incredible amount of research and talent.

Main character Willa has returned home after spending twelve years in captivity with Indians - mostly happy years, but years in captivity, nonetheless. Her birth parents are missing, however, and men hardened with hatred from the Revolutionary War make adjusting to a new land and home difficult, especially when her parents are suspect loyalists and when she still clings to her adopted culture. The introduction of an injured Scotsman and two orphaned children to her path complicates things, and love and faith must find a way to survive amongst the hardships.

It's a beautiful, albeit long, historical romance that engages and holds the reader's attention. The story flows well, reads easy, and includes wonderful detail. Any fan of Christian romance will love this book. It's hard to put down.

*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review of it.
