Tulsa, Indian territory, 1903 - A 13-year-old mixed blood girl rebels against an arranged marriage and reclaims her Cherokee heritage.
Broken Heart Land is the story of Alma Wimsey, the mixed-blood daughter of a Cherokee father and white mother. At thirteen, Alma is manipulated into an arranged marriage so that her white grandfather can exert control over her tribal land allotment and control miles of acreage along the railroad right-of-way through Tulsa. But, Alma is just as willful and wily as the old man. She goes through with the marriage, but she rebels against and destroys her grandfather's plans of empire. By embracing her Cherokee heritage, Alma frees herself to live the life she chooses and finds her own way to true love.
