    I'm pasting in the review I posted on comI am a Christian who loves to read well written Christian historical fiction However I see far too often the mindset that as long as the book has a Christian message the writing can be mediocre This is wrong Christian writers should strive to be the best at their craft They should take pains with accuracy because they have a vital interest in the truth and if they want to be a witness their writing has to be able to capture the reader's interest and heart A PLACE TO CALL HOME does not accomplish this I have not been able to bring myself to read the entire book therefore this review is based upon what I have readThe book's problems are manifold Dialogue is painfully stilted; the narrative is wooden Historical and cultural accuracy is lacking throughout The book is a work of fiction and perhaps the authors think the disclaimer on the copyright page means it doesn't matter if liberties are taken with fact However liberties taken should be few and minor The historical errors in this book are not due to a lack of good information I found all the information I cite below uite easily using a few books and the internet for research I would be happy to provide sources if readers wish to have them These are only a few of the problems in the book1 In the foreword the Lacys say that Seuoyah was born around 1773 in North Carolina They present this as historical fact The year and place of Seuoyah's birth are uncertain because there is no written record but he is thought to have been born in the Cherokee village of Tuskegee Tennessee near today's Vonore TN where historian James Mooney wrote that he lived as a child He may have been born as early as 1760 1765 He apparently moved from Tennessee to Georgia to Alabama; I found no mention of him living in North Carolina Seuoyah never learned to speak or read English was not a Christian and did NOT translate the Bible into Cherokee According to Wikipedia the translation of the New Testament into Cherokee was undertaken by several men among them Samuel Worcester and Elias Boudinot over a span of years beginning in 1824 and was not printed until 1850 There still is not a complete translation of the Bible into Cherokee2 John Ross born in Turkeytown Alabama instead of North Carolina was 18 Cherokee not 14 However the Cherokee would have accepted him as full blood because to them descent is matrilineal; the mother's blood determines what the child is If the mother is Cherokee the child is all Cherokee regardless of the father's heritage John's mother Molly Ross was 34 Scottish by patrilineal reckoning but to the Cherokee she was completely Cherokee The Lacys are inaccurate by either method calling John Ross 14 Cherokee He did not speak Cherokee well as he was educated in the white world He probably did not meet Seuoyah until after the Trail of Tears and certainly would not have been chumming around with him as a child as they were born and raised in different places3 Chapter One Pathkiller refers to Molly Ross as a half breed Not only is it inaccurate to say she was half Cherokee but the term half breed has a derogatory connotation and no chief would have applied it to one of his own people4 Chapter Two The setting switches to Gatlinburg TN and the home of a white family living there The date given is May 1801 However the settlement that became Gatlinburg got started in the decade after 1806 Gatlinburg was named in 18565 Chapter Two Four Cherokee boys ride into Bryson City NC to retrieve a stolen horse and get in trouble because of a rule that the Cherokee may not enter the white towns There are two problems here First there was no such rule The actual law was that the white settlers were not allowed to enter the Cherokee towns without permission Next the action here takes place in 1801 but the first white settlements in that area started about 1809 and Bryson City did not exist until after the Trail of Tears Bryson City was originally called Charleston founded in 1871 and incorporated in 1887 It was renamed Bryson City in 18896 Chapter Three A Cherokee father disciplines his son by whipping him with a strap but Cherokee did not use this form of discipline Moreover a father was not allowed to punish his children because he belonged to a different clan Discipline was left to the mother or the mother's oldest brother Granted things changed gradually as the Cherokee assimilated but such a scenario would still have been fairly unlikely in 18017 Many names used by the Lacys in their book are not Cherokee names Bando and Binjie are not there is no B sound in Cherokee nor is Tisimndo Cherokee can't have that grouping of consonants or Ridino no R sound Naya and Haylee can be rendered in the Cherokee syllabary but are not Cherokee names8 I have not read this far but I am told that the Lacys ignore the fact that before they were sent on the Trail of Tears the Cherokee were forced into wooden stockades where they were held for several months before their journey west began Why would they leave this important fact unmentioned?I cannot recommend A PLACE TO CALL HOME to anyone and I do not plan to read any of the Cherokee Rose series Al and Joanna Lacy have written many books and have a good reputation in the world of Christian historical fiction but their efforts with this book were far from adeuate I sincerely hope this was a temporary lapse on their part

    As a historical fiction book with a Christian story it was a nice read Historically it is not 100% accurate but we have to remember the story is fictionAs a creative work I do not see the book winning awards For a relaxing read that focuses on the Trail of Tears and a budding relationship it was a good read

    I thought that it was sad that the Cherokees were forced out of their homeland when they were here first I also thought that it was pretty romantic with the soldier

    This was the first Al Lacy book that I have read I was not disappointedIt may not have been exactly historically accurate but I mean it's a FICTION book Don't read it if you want a full on History lesson Personally I wasn't looking for a History lesson The four stars is because it started slow Some parts felt unrealistic The dialogue at times felt unnatural But looking past those things I found a uite intriguing bookI enjoyed the fictional story line in the true events I will definitely read the rest of the series I appreciated the Scripture verses and especially that they were the King James Version I know that the main character was Cherokee Rose and I did like her and Lieutenant Britt Claiborne but honestly my favorites were Layne and Sylvia Ward They were training preachers volunteering to make the unnecessary for them journey caring for the sick at risk of their own health and possible death preaching funerals digging graves and leading people of all sorts and circumstances to Salvation in Christ Jesus This was a very good book You can be sure that I will be reading many of Al Lacy's books

    I was hoping it was going to be about a couple who fall in love on the Trail of Tears and it was of a history book re US government Seuayah and Chief John Ross There were parts that were only included to show the despair and death on the trailReview


  7. Lacy Stephens Lacy Stephens says:

    This was certainly an educational and even interesting read I just wasn't able to become deeply Immersed in it like I would have preferred It's good if you're perhaps looking into the history of the Cherokee Indians
