Shelf Control - Jan 29

Shelf Control is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves sponsored by Lisa at Bookshelf Fantasies. Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up!

Want to join in? Shelf Control posts go up every Wednesday. Here's how to jump on board:
  • Write a blog post about a book that you own that you haven’t read yet.
  • Add your link in the comments!
  • Link back to Bookshelf Fantasies in your own post.
  • Check out other posts, and…
Have fun!

Lordy, it has been eight months since I posted one of these. Yikes! Life can get in the way sometimes.


Caught between two worlds at war, he could lose everything—his country, his faith, and the woman who holds his heart captive.

Brigadier General Jonathan Carleton has pledged his allegiance to the cause of liberty, his service to General George Washington, and his heart to fiery Elizabeth Howard. But when Washington takes command of the American forces, he orders Carleton to undertake a perilous journey deep into Indian country and persuades Elizabeth to continue her work as a spy.

Captured and enslaved by the Seneca, Carleton is stripped of everything but his faith in God. At last rescued by the Shawnee, he is taken deep into Ohio Territory and adopted as the warrior White Eagle. When he rises to become war chief, he is drawn unwillingly into a bitter war against the white settlers who threaten to overrun the Shawnee's ancestral lands.

Meanwhile, as General William Howe gathers his forces to attack the outmatched Continental Army in New York City, Elizabeth despairs of ever learning Carleton's fate. But as the western frontier explodes into flame, the name of White Eagle begins to spread beyond the borders of Ohio Territory.

DATE BOUGHT: This has been on my shelf for at least 10 years. :(

WHY I BOUGHT IT: I read the third book in this series when it came out. At the time, I was reviewing books from Sheaf House Publishers, so I bought more in the series. Historical fiction set during early America is something I love to read almost as  much Civil War fiction.

I recently moved this book to another shelf. I don't know if I will be reading it this year, but it would be nice if I got to it.

This does sound good! It's a fascinating historical time, for sure.

This isn't my usual genre, but it sounds pretty good! Hope you get to it soon:-)
