Path of the Guiding Light by Sharon K. Middleton
Cherokee attorney Baylie Smith hates pushing paper at the Bureau of Indian Affairs. When Baylie learns time travel exists, she goes to 1787 to guide her people westward to safety before the Trail of Tears. Baylie becomes a warrior woman, where her intelligence, cunning and logic help the tribe win a decisive battle against the Chickamauga Cherokees. She earns ownership of enslaved Kirk O’Malley, who the Cherokees believe is the white devil, Tsul Kalu. Baylie and Shadow Wolf fall in love and are about to marry when O’Malley manages to go forward in time. The village orders her to retrieve O’Malley to his correct time. But Kirk finds love with Mellie Henderson, and refuses to return to the past as Baylie learns she is pregnant with Wolf’s ’different-abled’ child. Will Baylie be able to rejoin Shadow Wolf, claim her destiny, and fulfill her part of the prophecy?
