The ending was illogical and stupid.
The council met and condemned an innocent girl to death by firing squad. It was hinted that this was because she was a half breed who couldn't be trusted. Well, if she was guilty of the crime, why did she return to tell the people on the train what really happened? If she was guilty she would have just disappeared into the wilderness. If she was the true murderess, why would she have screamed to alert everyone on the wagon train instead of quietly slipping away? If the council of 12 was half white and half Cherokee, why didn't they condemn the true killers to the firing squad? The story claimed it was because the council was so upset at almost killing the innocent girl that they now didn't have the backbone to shoot the true killers. Instead they were sending the killers to the nearest fort to stand trial...where the military judge would side with the white killers, glad to be rid of one more Indian, and let the killers go to hunt down the couple who is supposed to live happily ever after.
Don't waste your time.
Rachel `Winter Dawn' Keye was indeed half white and half Cherokee. She had been sold to the lowlife Doaks by her own half brother but the slavery she was sold into was about to come to an end. There was a wagon train leaving for the gold fields of California and she planned to be on it. She thought she had found her escape in Daniel Wolfe who would be traveling with the train partway and then heading north for Oregon. It turns out that Daniel wants no part of her and ends up turning her out.
This might have been a setback for Rachel but it wouldn't hold her back. She was determined to make it to California, forget her Injun side and become a white woman. She couldn't wait to enjoy everything that came with being white. The fancy dresses, pretty houses and the handsome men coming to call. She would never return to the part of her that was always looked down upon. The part of her that was Cherokee.
I don't normally read romance novels. I go in for the actions of who-done-it and leave the loving to other readers. At least that's what I normally do but this time I agreed to read Trail to Forever and was totally surprised. Most romance novels start with the man and woman hating each other, or at least saying they do, until the end. Then they admit they are truly in love and have always been. So they battle to see who is going to say it first. Trail to Forever was different. It does provide the love story but it doesn't over power the book. It provides tension and stress as the wagon train traveled across the country. It provides history, which I enjoyed, as both Indian and white man as they traveled across country for the same goal - gold. It also provides the story of a half white, half Cherokee woman that wanted to be all white. She wanted to be accepted by other white women and this just wasn't to be. Winter Dawn learns to look deep inside herself to find who she really is and then to accept who she is and be proud of her heritage. This is a lesson that a lot of us need to learn. I have to admit that I did enjoy Trail to Forever.
Dream spirit scenes enrich the book. Most powerful was when Rachel healed the source of Daniel's pain that kept them apart. I appreciate it when someone recommends a good book to me which is why I recommend this one to you.
