From the Publisher“I found it refreshingly honest and devoid of religious platitudes and cliche. Passages of Native American spirituality struck me with beauty and authenticity, affirming the universality of common truth. Heartbreaking and brutal at times, Carleton’s journey in particular resonated with me. His battle to retain faith in the midst of personal, political, physical and total upheaval left an impression as few other stories have—challenging my own conventions, foundations and moral bedrock.
“As the first in the series Daughter of Liberty was, this is a wealth of research and regional history. From the southwestern New York border where much of the book was set, I recognized and appreciated the veracity and intimacy of her details in native custom, flora, fauna and people. Almost Michener-esque in scope, this is a historical fiction piece worthy of note.” —Kathleen L. Maher
“Ms. Hochstetler’s prose is exquisite, her imagery breathtaking, her research impeccable and her story heart-wrenching. As the sequel to Daughter of Liberty, this story is even richer in drama and anguish than the first and certainly challenges Ms. Hochstetler to surpass these first two books in her next novel. Even if it “only” equals what is already written, it will be a superb piece of writing. . . . If there is a film producer looking for the next North/South series to mesmerize American TV audiences, adapting this series can do it.” —Bonnie Toews
“Native Son is an intensely moving story, impeccably researched and excellently written.

Hochstetler expertly weaves a tale of historical fiction with a romance that must survive the trials and dangers of the times. Outstanding!” —Erika Osborn, Christian Book Previews.com
“Native Son is not only meticulously researched, but is an engaging story as well. J. M. Hochstetler has taken a thrilling time in American history and made it come alive with living, breathing characters that a reader can cheer onward. Native Son gets four stars and two thumbs up!” —Craig Hart, craighart.net
“Tense moments abound in this tale of intrigue, adventure and romance set against the compelling backdrop of the birth of a nation.” —Romantic Times BookClub
"Imagine the movie The Patriot meets Last of the Mohicans and that’s what you have in Native Son. This book is extremely well-written, fast paced and engaging. Ms. Hochstetler’s knowledge of the various Indian tribes’ customs and daily living is quite amazing and intriguing. The faith message is powerful but deftly woven into the story in a realistic way. Readers will be anxiously awaiting the next book in this exciting series." —Vickie McDonough, Dancing Word Reviews
