但他们的爱情能熬过“泪路”吗?“《切诺基玫瑰》是一个很好的故事，也是了解一个我们宁愿掩盖在地毯下的历史事件的好方法。——畅销书《Amethyst Story Behind the…》的作者Lauraine Snelling
残酷的西路这是1838年夏末。马丁·范布伦总统发布命令，将居住在北卡罗来纳州斯莫基山脉的一万五千名切罗基印第安人驱逐出他们的家园。被迫迁移到印第安人领地的切罗基人开始了他们悲惨的，向西一千英里的旅程。一路上护送他们的七千名士兵，大多是残忍残忍的。但切罗基·罗斯，一个18岁的印第安女孩，发现了一个愿意为他们挺身而出的士兵，布里特·克莱本中尉。两人都是基督徒，切罗基·罗斯发现布里特本人也有四分之一的切罗基血统。就在这条“泪之路”上，他们相爱了，梦想着有一天能结婚，一起找到一个叫做家的地方。他们在悲剧中找到了彼此，但他们的爱足以让他们在一起吗?切罗基·罗斯比任何一个18岁的女孩所承受的都要多。虽然被她的部落接受，但混血和基督徒的身份使她与众不同。 Then fifteen thousand Cherokee Indians are evicted from their homes in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. Broken and angry, Cherokee Rose joins her people on the thousand-mile trek westward to Indian Territory. The journey holds many trials—not the least of which is the cruelty of the soldiers escorting them. But Cherokee Rose is determined: these men will not break her. Lieutenant Britt Claiborne is devoted to serving his country, but he detests the way his fellow soldiers treat the Indians. He not only refuses to join in, but does all he can to stop the abuse. To the soldiers, he is a traitor. To those he helps, a champion. But Britt knows he’s only doing what he must, not just because he’s a Christian, but for a reason he’s reluctant to reveal. Thrown together in the face of brutality, these two find themselves falling in love. They dream of marrying and finding a place to call home. But can their love survive the Trail of Tears? “Cherokee Rose is a good story and a great way to learn about a historical event we would rather sweep under the rug.” --Lauraine Snelling, bestselling author of Amethyst Story Behind the Book Long captivated with the study of American history, Al and JoAnna Lacy eagerly researched the time in the 1800s when the five “civilized tribes” were forced by the U.S. government to make a one-thousand-mile journey to Indian Territory (now the state of Oklahoma). The tribes were the Cherokee, the Chickasaw, the Choctaw, the Creek, and the Seminole. Repeatedly forced to surrender their lands, the people of the Cherokee Nation, as well as those of the other four tribes, were hoping to find in Indian Territory a place to call home .
