Stalking and kidnapping in the 19th century!
After the death of her father in the spring of 1893 in South Carolina, Amelia Porter discovers her father’s old travel journals that tell of his marriage to a Cherokee maiden during one of his summer trading trips. Amelia further learns of the birth of a baby daughter. A sister she never knew existed.
Thwarted in her request to travel un-chaperoned with her father’s former young trapping companion, a strong-willed Amelia is determined to find and unite with her half-sister, in spite of the intimidating warnings from her stern godfather and her mother’s concern for her safety. With decisive single-mindedness she devises an intricate scheme to follow the roguish trapper to the Cherokee trading camp.
During the course of Amelia’s treacherous journey she is stalked by a renegade Indian named Mukipha who plots to kidnap her and take her for his wife or place her head on a pole in front of his abode if she refuses. He is obsessed with the anticipated magic that her long, curly red hair will bring him in order to vindicate him and restore his position within his tribe. The budding romance between Amelia and the trapper only makes Mukipha a more dangerous and angry predator while trying to capture his trophy.
My Father’s Daughter is a historical adventure filled with suspense, romance, laughter and tears, taking the reader on a journey through the backwoods and swamps of South Carolina into the Blue Ridge Mountains, as well as into the real world of the Cherokee long after the Trail Of Tears.
The current Medicine Woman and Keeper of the Flame for the Cherokee Nation was the resource for much of the authentic and historically accurate Cherokee customs of that era.
