Cherokee Rose and Britt Claiborne know the meaning of survival. They endured the Trail of Tears, watching as friends and family fell along the way, facing down brutal opposition to their growing love. But that's all in the past. Now married, content in a home they've built themselves, Britt and Cherokee Rose plan a future of home and family. And though Britt's work as a law officer in Indian Territory takes him away from home for days at a time, Cherokee Rose tries not to worry. Then, the unthinkable happens. A group of Indians break out of jail, bent on revenge against the one who imprisoned them: Britt.
Heavens Shine Above New Beginnings 1839. The North Carolina Cherokees are settling into their new home in Indian Territory and Britt Claiborne and Cherokee Rose are settling into married life. Britt, a quarter Cherokee Indian, is released from the United States army and joins the Cherokee Police Force where his position takes him into fearsome and heart-gripping dangers. They raise two children with much love and delight. They also lean on God through the trials of their day - including the death of the popular Cherokee Chief Sequoyah, who had translated the Bible into their language. Follow the historical events that punctuate their lives until 1889, when President Harrison announces that whites are free to enter Indian Territory , now known by the Indians as home.
