Read a free sample of our eBook of the Day, Ghost Country, by Dana Michelle Burnett, without leaving your browser!

Here's the set-up for Ghost Country by Dana Michelle Burnett:

Carrying echoes of Amy Tan and Rebecca Wells, Ghost Country takes the reader into the lives of three Cherokee women and the lives of their modern day daughters.

Told in a series of vignettes that alternate from the era of the Civil Rights Movement, Woodstock, and the Vietnam War, to the present day.

Each story carries the reader through a world where a birthday wish can make people disappear; where a child, after being told that she is nothing, can find her way back to the forgotten Cherokee traditions; and where a woman can give her daughter a treasured bit of advice thanks to a dead rock star.

From the Author:  

"Ghost Country was my first fiction novel to be published. The novel features a glimpse into my own Cherokee ancestry mixed with fictional characters and compelling stories.  

"The idea for the novel sprang from the Cherokee heritage of my own family, from one generation to the next; our tie to the Cherokee has become less evident.

"With the birth of my daughter, I began to research our Cherokee lineage so that perhaps my daughter's connection could be stronger than mine was.  During my research, these characters came to mind.  Ghost Country became the result."
