Listen to Bear tell of her transformation from a captive fourteen year old white girl named Elle Graves to the powerful Indian woman, wife, mother, and finally, survivor. Her story is wrapped within the Cherokee Nation at a time when they were at their best and ultimately driven to their worst. With Andrew Jackson as president we see their forced migration to land west of the Mississippi and the tragic Trail of Tears in 1839. We see depravation and deception, broken promises and sorrow. But we also see determination, hope, faith and honesty. Elle experiences the worst of hatred and the best of love as she travels down her life path and strives to reconcile the two worlds that she knows; her white one that she can never escape and the red one that she has chosen to embrace. As she travels her life journey, which involves her head, her heart, and perhaps most importantly, her soul, she finds out that she was always a powerful woman even before she knew it.

About the Author

Susan McGeown is a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, aunt, uncle (don’t ask), teacher, author … but, most importantly, a “woman after God’s own heart”. Living in Bridgewater, New Jersey, with her husband of over fifteen years and their three children, writing stories is just about the best way she can imagine to spend her free time. Each and every one of Sue’s stories champions those emotions nearest and dearest to her: faith, joy, hope and love.
