Rate this book
A true story of murder, and the aftermath of loved ones who are left behind.
Every day, normal-appearing people commit crimes that seem mystifying. "Why?"
My quest to find out the truth to this question became my life. I was going to walk in the footsteps of a woman who disappeared, but was forever in my heart. I did not know where or how my story was going to end.
I learned the less you have the more it hurts when you lose it. Everything you see is something you cannot have.
The memory of my journey will live in my heart for the rest of my days.

An inquisitive mind, some intuition & coincidence solve a mystery

I have read most of Jeannie Walker’s books and never been disappointed. She brings the instincts of a tenacious investigator and merges them with qualities of an engaging interviewer. In this book she opens with a mystery. A young woman is murdered, creating a mystery that won’t be solved for another fifty years.

About the same time, the mother of two young boys goes missing. She left hope to sell jewelry and never returned. Details unfold as the author presses her dad for details as to why she only has two grandparents. Her dad explains both of his parents are dead and that he and his brother grew up in an orphanage.

As the story moves forward we learn of an enduring bond that develops between the author and her dad. She eventually learns of her Indian heritage, including the trials and tribulations of the Cherokees and other eastern tribes who were forced from their homes, farms and businesses by the U.S. Government. We have come to know the name of this event as the, Trail of Tears. It was nothing less than an atrocity as people were forced to travel during the winter in summer clothes. Some died from exposure, others from disease and many from starvation during their travels from the eastern states to Indian Country, now known as Oklahoma.

Jeannie Walker is motivated by her love of family and faith in God. She demonstrates that while describing the time she spent during the last days of her dad’s life. She cares for him to the very end.

Following the death of her father, she has a dream of a young girl and an encounter with an Indian princess. Soon after that, Jeannie discovers an old newspaper clipping with a headline referring to the discovery of the body of a woman north of Atoka. She soon becomes convinced the story was giving her a glimpse of her missing grandmother.

Events take various turns. In one we learn about the murder of a sheriff’s deputy, Gene Moore who was killed by Clyde Barrow or a member of his gang.

I’ll leave the rest of the story for you to enjoy but want to add an observation about the style of the book. Each chapter has a descriptive title and subtitle followed by a relevant quotation by a famous writer. I appreciate this added refinement. It's a nice touch. I’m confident that fans of Jeannie Walker will enjoy this heartfelt story. If you aren’t already a fan, you might become one. Check out this memorable story.

Finding an unmarked grave for a lost, loved one is like looking for a needle in a haystack. It was only by the Grace of God that the grave was found and now has an engraved tombstone.

Jeannie Walker does it again w/ Forever in My Heart!

Jeannie writes from the heart. She's writing about her personal life experiences. I especially love this book, because I'm very interested in Native American history, with murder, mystery, and family ties, a combination that make this story unforgettable. I would recommend Forever in My Heart to anyone who enjoys murder mysteries, true crime, American Indian Culture and genealogy .
