Overview

After the murder of her grandmother, Dora Baskin inherits her home, a 172-year-old log house in Manitou Springs, Colorado. Was the murder a random act of violence, or something even more sinister?

With her new friend, Shawn, Dora gradually finds the answer in a handwritten account of one of her ancestors, Isadora Byrnes, a nineteenth century Englishwoman taken in by a Cherokee family. In the pages of this journal, they learn about the secret organization which spent decades pursuing Isadora Byrnes to America, beyond the Trail of Tears and into the Rocky Mountains, seeking to acquire the mysterious silver artifact she possessed.

They also find that this organization is still around, they still want that artifact.

And they think Dora has it.

About the Author

Kelly Cheek has been closely following a creative muse for his entire life. Almost from infancy, he frequently had a pencil in his hand, drawing pictures or writing simple childish tales. In his teens, he began trying his hand at writing actual short stories.
Having spent years honing his craft, he's also a lover of history, and of the fact that he's 1/16th Cherokee. (Yes, he has blond hair and blue eyes -- he's also part Irish. He is particularly fascinated with how the past interacts with and influences the present.
Kelly Cheek lives in Denver, Colorado, not far from where Isadora Byrnes settled, where he can often be found hunched over his computer, pouring his lifeblood into his next opus.

Knowing something about Native American history, I appreciated the authors' ability to tell an interesting story while staying true to the facts. The book involves two different storylines, one in the past and one in the present. Past and present switched back and forth from one chapter to the next, but it was easy to follow. The characters were likable and seemed realistic, and even though I'm not personally familiar with many of the locations in the story, the descriptions allowed me to visualize the setting. Highly recommended.
