Book Review-Beyond the Cherokee Trail By Lisa Carter

Beyond the Cherokee Trail
By: Lisa Carter
Published By:  Abingdon Press

After 180 years the wounds are not healed and prejudices still run deep. 

When Linden Birchfield arrives in the Snowbird Cherokee community to organize the 180th commemoration of the Trail of Tears, she runs head on—literally—into arrogant former army sniper Walker Crowe. A descendant of the Cherokee who evaded deportation by hiding in the rugged Snowbird Mountains, Walker believes no good can result from stirring up the animosity with the white Appalachian residents whose ancestors looted the tribal lands so long ago.

Though at odds over the commemoration, Linden and Walker must unite against an unseen threat to derail the festival. Together they face an enemy whose implacable hatred can be traced to the events of the Trail, a dark chapter in America’s westward expansion. When called to resurrect his sniper abilities, Walker must thwart the enemy who threatens the modern-day inhabitants of tiny Cartridge Cove—and targets the woman who has captured his heart.

I was hooked from the first page.  I couldn’t put it down so read it in one afternoon.  I love books that have a fiction story-line but are based on historical fact.  This is one of the best.  The atrocities the Cherokee faced during deportation will bring tears to your eyes and their triumphs will bring joy to your heart.  This book is filled with a little mystery, romance and forgiveness.  I highly recommend this book…just be sure to have the tissues near by.

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this eBook by the publisher, Abingdon Press, through NetGalley blogger program for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
