Abraham's Well by Sharon Ewell Foster

The time is 1838. . . Inspired by true events, authentic slave narratives, and other historical accounts, "Abraham's Well" is the profoundly moving story of the Black Cherokee--African Americans, both slave and free--who, along with Native people, walked the Trail of Tears. It is the story of their forced migration from the Southeast to Indian Territory (modern-day Oklahoma). And of a feisty girl's courage and faith on her journey to womanhood and freedom. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, "Abraham's Well", winner of the 2006 Romantic Times Award for Best Inspirational, is as relevant today as when it was first published and features Native American, African American and White characters. This special edition of "Abraham's Well" which features a foreword by John McCullough, CWS President and CEO, will benefit hungry and displaced people around the world through Church World Services' CROP Hunger Walk Program.
