Deborah Healabout this book: I always fall a little in love with my heroes. This was especially true of Only One Way Home, a fictionalized version of the arrival of the Cherokee in Illinois via the Golconda Ferry on December 3, 1838 during their Trail of Tears.
Professor Merri Randall and her old friends Abby and John watch the horrific scene unfold on their computer screen via their amazing time-rewinding software. The whole thing would be unbearably sad except that young Matthias Frailey comes to the Cherokee's rescue so heroically. Matthias is fictional, but he sprang to life after I read the historical account of the way some Golconda residents gave the starving Cherokee pumpkins to eat. Other kind people along the trail took in Cherokee babies in order to save their lives. How horrible it must have been to put your infant into the arms of strangers. It was truly a Trail of Tears. And I shed many tears as I researched for this novel and even some as I wrote the scenes.
Because I have Cherokee blood myself and because Matthias Frailey seems so real to me, Only One Way Home is my favorite of all the novels I've written. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it.
