Set in the heart of Alabama, fans will
return to the small town of Evergreen for the sequel to “Hens Rule.” Cherokee
Rose is the story of the indirect descendents of an Indian Princess, Catatrinah and the curse she placed on her family at
the time of her death. The story between the return of Ollie Hinton’s unstable ex-wife and Mollie’s kidnapping
while in her stepmother’s care continues on with a race against time and a family curse ending with an unexpected twist.
Susan Weekley has again managed to surprise
her readers with her mastery of the surprise ending. I highly recommend this book for all who love the Cherokee Indians and
not necessarily tidy endings.
