    I started this book with a feeling of melancholy because this was my first book I had read by Janet Dailey one of the great authors of our time since her passing I knew the subject matter was a sad tragic time in our American history but read it I must for I being a Cherokee descendant on both parents side anything on the Trail of Tears always commands my attention Of course my heart would cry profusely over the souls lost on this lonesome Trail and I have always wondered just how many died bl I started this book with a feeling of melancholy because this was my first book I had read by Janet Dailey one of the great authors of our time since her passing I knew the subject matter was a sad tragic time in our American history but read it I must for I being a Cherokee descendant on both parents side anything on the Trail of Tears always commands my attention Of course my heart would cry profusely over the souls lost on this lonesome Trail and I have always wondered just how many died blood I carry in my veins that I will never know Janet Dailey was blessed with a God given gift of story telling to the point one could almost believe her stories for fact and this is especially true in The Proud and the Free I almost read it for fact and would like to think I had relatives just like the Blade and Temple The Trail of Tears is a inexcusable time in our history and one that all should be taught about but it will never be so we must find out thru books such as this one and others but it should be shared some way some how shared with our future generations this sad story of The Trail of Tears

    First sentence The mud splattered stagecoach rolled to a stop in front of the Chester Inn, where several people stood on the porch awaiting its arrival Eliza Hall has just accepted a post as a tutor for a Cherokee family deep in the Cherokee Nation in what is now Georgia What she finds when she gets there is not at all what she expected The family lives on a sprawling plantation and behaves much like any wealthy white family would The oldest daughter, Temple, is a fiery romantic with eyes First sentence The mud splattered stagecoach rolled to a stop in front of the Chester Inn, where several people stood on the porch awaiting its arrival Eliza Hall has just accepted a post as a tutor for a Cherokee family deep in the Cherokee Nation in what is now Georgia What she finds when she gets there is not at all what she expected The family lives on a sprawling plantation and behaves much like any wealthy white family would The oldest daughter, Temple, is a fiery romantic with eyes for the rebellious neighbor, The Blade Stuart The family patriarch, Will Gordon is weighed down with concerns for his family and his Nation with the Georgians rumbling forland and President Jackson promising to relocate all Indians to land out west before his term is up The book follows the family for 10 years during a time of upheaval and tragedy for the Cherokee Nation The book provides a well researched fictional take on the relocation of the Cherokees, also known as The Trail of Tears It was a very heartbreaking time in America s history, one that very few books talk about Like most historical fiction I read I learned a lot from this book I didn t know, such as the fact that many slaves owned by the Cherokee ended up on the trail with them, suffering and dying along with their masters After reading this book, I am very interested in reading some nonfiction about the Trail of Tears I enjoyed the portrayal of the female characters in this book They are all very strong and very strong willed They hold themselves and their families together despite devastating blows to their way of life They do hold traditional female roles of wife, mother, and teacher, but that doesn t make them weak or subjugated to men They often stand up to men and occasionally have to take onmasculine roles Temple and Eliza are very compelling characters to read about I did have some problems with this book I expected the sometimes cheesy romance aspect so I didn t mind that too much, but if you are a reader who does take offense to that you may want to steer clear of the book The lack of motivation in the characters bothered me though I didn t really feel that the motivation behind the characters actions was very well explained The book doesn t explore the thought processes behind decisions as well as it should in my opinion My other problem is that a lot of the characters are flat and one dimensional This is best exemplified with Kipp and Victoria Kipp is just a violent character and Victoria just cares about her children and you never get to see another side to them Even Temple and Eliza were at times hard to tell apart the book mainly switches between their perspectives Also, though the book s chapter headings started off by stating what month and year the book was in, sometimes it was hard to follow where we were in the timeline The author even seemed to fall into this confusion a few times Once she claimed one of the characters was less than a year old when he should have been at least 2 I still recommend the book, especially for those interested in Native American history It is very well researched and provides a lot of factual information about The Trail of Tears for a fictional book The story is heart breaking, but hopeful It gives a nice glimpse into what the lives of normal people would have been like during this tumultuous period

    Go home and tell your people the Cherokee that their only hope for relief is to abandon their nation and remove to the west This book is centered around a fictional Cherokee family and puts them front and center with events prior to and through the tribe being forced to remove from their territorial lands the Trail of Tears While there is a romantic element to the story and perhaps a tad too much sex , I wouldn t classify this as a romance novel, and some events that happen especiallyGo home and tell your people the Cherokee that their only hope for relief is to abandon their nation and remove to the west This book is centered around a fictional Cherokee family and puts them front and center with events prior to and through the tribe being forced to remove from their territorial lands the Trail of Tears While there is a romantic element to the story and perhaps a tad too much sex , I wouldn t classify this as a romance novel, and some events that happen especially during the march to Oklahoma might be a bit much for some lighter minded readers Don t pick this up with the expectation of a fluffy romance This was an interesting, albeit disturbing read and makes me very ashamed for my nation My only quibble in the writing was the name of the hero nickname actually The Blade Just once I would have like to have heard his real name, like when he s sharing intimate moments with his wife, but no every time he s mentioned it is The Blade, and I felt I was being clubbed over the head with it Still worthwhile for those interested in this period

    Cheesy and overly predictable Although I will say that I enjoyed reading about the Cherokee and how they were so wronged by our own United States government I always knew Andrew Jackson was a jerk How Americans could be so selfish, concieted and self rightious It makes me ashamed of our forefathers Perhaps I should have read non fiction about this time period instead of this overly mushy romance novel.

  7. Cindy Kester says:

    Too much history in this book for me It took place during the troubling times of slavery and our Native American s troubled times in the 1830 s A true love story if you re into historical fiction you may enjoy I was glad when I was finished, although it had a happy ending.

  8. Annette Summerfield says:

    I couldn t get into or read all the political talk going on, but the love story involved is touching and kept me reading it It s heart breaking, tragic and filled with love and endurance.
