Enemies come in many forms, and they are not always what you think. Jacob Murray has learned that lesson, but it haunts him once again. The tides of the war have finally changed and the British are beginning to gain ground over their French adversaries. The French sit within the walled city of Québec, waiting for their enemy. Jacob and Maggie are still apart, separated by thousands of miles of unfamiliar wilderness. Despite this adversity, they each seek a way to find what remains of their family. Faced with her own challenges, Maggie finds unlikely friendship and assistance from what she believed were her enemies. Following an opportunity to track down her son, she journeys to Québec City, where she finds a city preparing for a siege from the British army, who are determined to end the war. Jacob faces his own challenges, and finds he is often forced to fight not only his enemies, but also those who should be his allies. Blind Faith tells the story of deserters, a country controlled by the church, and the walled city that holds many secrets.

This historical novel does well in carrying its readers through a part of the French and Indian War in 1759. We gain powerful insights, feeling the emotional swings and hazards faced by the characters. The author, a brilliant historian, weaves characters amidst historical facts, giving readers a view of the war's colonist trackers and focuses on their leader, Jacob Murray––his tenacious endurance––and his dilemmas.
The side story of his wife Maggie establishes her as a pioneering heroine. Their deep characterization inspires admiration when we consider the many folks who came before us––to settle North America. The underlying current of love gives us hope as we traverse through the agony of war and the challenges of the wild.
Reader interest is captured on the first page. After the latest demoralizing battle defeat, Jacob's compassion and disgust rises when he sees the pathos caused by inept British Officers. Jacob agonizes...
Another chapter of the series comes all too soon to a close. Maggie and Jacob have plenty of action in this sixth book and are so close to finding each other by the books finish. One can't help but feel their need to reunite but also feel some sadness knowing there is only one more book left to read. This book is full of their adventures in the Canadian wilderness and ones feel as part of the group as they move on. Hopefully the author has some other ideas for another series.
As with the other 5 books in this series, I read it within a few days. This is one of the few historical series that I've read that has such extraordinary detail that the characters and environment come alive. I am anxiously waiting for book 7, but sincerely hope for another series during the same time period once this one is completed.
