War Trails

by Sally Hull

In this concluding story of the Trails series, young George Northwood (formerly known as Georgy), all grown up, travels back East from Oregon and lands in the middle of the American Civil War.

The Cellar Vault (The Secrets of the Cherokee Hideaway Book 2)

by Wheeler Pounds

I thoroughly enjoyed "The Cellar Vault", Wheeler Pounds' sequel to his first book "The Garden of Eve". As you read you get the feeling that you know the characters personally. The story-line's blend with factual history brought to light many things about the Cherokee removal to Oklahoma that aren't talked about in most studies about that time. I would recommend the book for anyone interested in learning more about the history of the Cherokee removal while enjoying a wonderful fictional family's story....
