Wheezer and the Painted Frog



By Kitty Sutton

5 Stars
Historical Fiction
Teen to Adult

I had the pleasure of stumbling across this book on Writing.com while it was still a work in progress. Kitty says my reviews were helpful in pushing her onward. She worked hard on this book and the results speak for themselves. What follows is an official review I submitted on a couple of websites. 

A historical novel that delivers on all levels. In her first novel Kitty Sutton pulls her readers into the camps following The Trail of Tears, a sad chapter in American history, and makes you feel right along with her characters. Her research is obvious from the start. As you follow Wheezer and Sasa in search Usti Yansa's killer you will learn about Cherokee culture and history almost without realizing it. This book is well written and even without the history lesson the story itself will keep you interested and will bring you to a satisfying end. I would recommend this book for anyone.

This is an interview with the author. Thanks to David Cleinman who conducted the interview on blogtalkradio. Someday it will be my turn.
