Pros: This book was difficult to put down. The storyline was engaging and educational at the same time. It is an excellent introduction to the historical event of the Cherokee Nation and the Trail of Tears. I was thrilled to see God glorified and His standards upheld. It is exciting to see historical fiction that challenges Christians to follow God's standards and lead a spirit led life.
Cons: I would recommend this book to older readers, due to the violent content involving the mistreatment of the indians depicted in the story.
