Litfuse Review: Many Sparrows by:Lori Benton

 Many Sparrows
About the Book:
Many Sparrows
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.


My Review:
 Trusting God is really difficult for the average human to do. We know we should and some may be able to attempt it, but it is very difficult. And if its your child you have to trust Him with--forget about it. Clare had to do just that because she had n other choice when he was taken from her. She has to pray that God will protect him. Clare knows without a shadow of doubt she will not rest until her son is back in her arms again.

 This is exactly why she needs help so that she doesn't get them both killed. Her determined mindedness struck Jeremiah Ring. Jeremiah knows that he cant just sit by and do nothing, he has to help Clare and he knows he is the one to do it because he has the experience needed.

 Poor Clare she is wrenched with sadness. I know I would be too. She has been handed some difficult situations and times in her life and it seems that everything is being snatched from her left and right. It was a difficult book to read because it was so sad and I felt so bad for Clare. Things aren't as simple as they seem and God's trust must and will run deeper than she could of ever imagined.

 A book that teaches us more than a typical fiction book ever could!
