    I really liked the story but this book is in dire need of an editor which totally distracted me while reading a book Typos story inconsistencies and repeated sentences and thoughts abound


  2. Misfit Misfit says:

    This is a very short book and that's just not the 151 page count as the book measures 5 x 7 and can easily be finished in an hour or two The story focuses on Elsie Feather and her family as the US Government forces the Cherokees to relocate and the long trail of tears to get to their new home A promising premise for a novel but there just isn't enough meat on the bones to really engage the reader like a full length novel with better character development might have If a copy falls in your lap as mine did and you have a bit of time to kill this might interest but otherwise I'd give it a miss

    ‘A Trail of Broken Promises’ by Jess Davon Joslin is a beautifully written heart wrenching story of a young Cherokee woman that losses everything she has but gains an inner strength she didn’t know she possessedI couldn’t put this book down once I started it Jess Davon Joslin does an amazing job of bringing the story alive Elsie Feather is a young Cherokee woman married to the family shaman She has her world ripped away from her in a moment not knowing where her family is or if they are even still alive She is forced from her home with nothing but the clothes she has onThe devastation takes its toll on many of the Cherokee as they are forced into holding camps until their time to march to their ‘new land’ arrives Finding what little hope she can during the ensuing months Elsie must find inner strength as she loses than most can bearThis is a story of strength courage heartbreak and the power of love for family and GodReviewed by Ursula Gorman author of ‘Old Acuaintances’ a mysteryromance to be released Dec 10Jan 11

    This was a decent little read like a novella than a novel tho It follows Elsie Feather as she is forced to leave her plantation and slaves Yes that surprised me too to travel the Trail of Tears to the newly formed Indian Territory The year is 1835 and the going is roughI never knew the Cherokees lived the way they did Growing up in Oklahoma I heard a lot about the Trail of Tears and always visualized Indians with bows arrows feathers and tomahawks wearing fringe and beads and moccasins so I can honestly say I learned a thing or two from this It does however need some better editing There were some misspelled words and just some overall strange things like if Elsie is looking at her husband in the crowd ahead how in the world does he call out her name from behind her? I was also hoping for depth The story was really a bit too uick

    I have such mixed feelings about this book First let me THANK Jess Davon Joslin for writing a story about the trail of tears Native history is a subject hardly ever written about in historical fiction We NEED books I am very aware of the Cherokee history in North Carolina and of the trail of tears The main family of this book is wealthy and owned slaves Yes some Cherokees did own slaves I wish they would have been an average Cherokee family that lived in a cabin and farmed A chance was missed to have the reader understand how the majority of the nation was living before the round up During the trail the book describes some of the conditions not enough blankets hardly any food the cruelty of the soldiers guarding them I would have liked a deeper look at the conditions More insight into the main characters I feel that this book just touched the surface I WANT

    The description of this book intrigued me enough to sign up for the giveaway and I was lucky enough to win an autographed copy I love historical fiction and was looking forward to receiving it in the mail I was very surprised when it arrived to find a very small story not a novel in my opinion I read it in about 2 3 hours and was very curious about the story of the Cherokee people and the Trail of Tears but was disappointed that it was not very detail oriented Also there were mistakes throughout that a good editor would have caught I almost felt like this book was a rough draft of what could be a truly wonderful story My rating is two stars because while I liked the story I wished there was to it

    Wow this was such a good book Granted there are some typos but what book does not have these?I thought the book was too short I wanted much much So much to the point that a google of the author led me to her Facebook Fan page and discovered a seuel in the works Score Now Elsie's saga can continue What she went through Heartbreaking and and heartwarming at the same timeThe topic of the book has caused myself and family to start researching what happened It is amazing that this chpater in our nation is so untouchedBack to the book great story great characters just wanted Maybe that is a good thing though


  8. Shomeret Shomeret says:

    This book has a Christian perspective It was interesting to see the complete text of a psalm in Cherokee There was also a line by line CherokeeEnglish rendition of Our Father Who Art In Heaven The English was apparently a literal translation of the Cherokee words rather than the conventional English text This was a different and unexpected viewpointYet like other readers I thought the book was too short In fact I thought it ended abruptly I would have liked to know if the surviving members of the Feather family managed to avoid re settlement


  9. Martha Martha says:

    I just finished reading the book It took me approximately 3 hours to read I think the book is geared for children and that it would give them an idea of what the Trail of Tears was I also felt that if I was to give this to a child to read I wouldn't be concerned regarding language violence sex etc I liked that it was written as a journal and one woman's journey on the Trail of Tears
