I am trying to help a friend find the title of a book she wants for her daughter. Here is what she is looking for.

It is about a Cherokee Indian girl and her family (Grandmother?) and when they
were force marched 1000 miles to the reservation (the trail of tears). 
It is a fiction book in the tradition of Scott O'Dell.  I was sure it
was Sing down the Moon and ordered it -- but that's not it.  I did not
read as a child -- but it is by one of those recognizable children
authors.  I read it in the 90s.  Does this ring any bells?

Any ideas?  Thanks!!

Perhaps?  Soft Rain : a story of the Cherokee Trail of Tears / Cornelia Corneissen.
New York : Delacorte Press, 1998.
