Book Description

28 Feb 2011
The healing waters of the Solomon Spring hold no miracle cure for murder... - A child custody battle turns deadly on a windswept winter prairie in 1878. - A man begins a quixotic search for lost love in an effort to mend his shattered life. - A sacred Native American shrine is about to be defiled, but not if one determined woman can stop it. These three seemingly unrelated stories collide at the Solomon Springs natural wonder held sacred for centuries because of its legendary healing properties. Murder shatters the spiritual calm that is Solomon Spring. Seeking solace from the turbulent life she has led, Eden Murdoch returns to the Solomon Spring. The tranquility of this timeless place will soon be corrupted by a local businessman who plans to exploit the sacred waters of the Spring. Eden's earnest fight to prevent this sacrilege is interrupted by her own past. Brad Randall, her one-time lover, arrives with the astounding news that the infant son Eden lost fourteen years before has been located and is living nearby. The joy of her reunion with her son and with Brad, is clouded by the reappearance of her long-estranged husband, Lawrence Murdoch, who seeks sole custody of the boy and of the prosperous ranch the boy will inherit from his adoptive father. The warring couple engages in a vicious battle, both legal and emotional, with an unexpectedly deadly outcome. ********************* Praise for Solomon Spring "The strong characters, the vivid details of life in the West in the late 1800s, and an engaging plot combine to make this an absorbing historical mystery."- Booklist "Credible and engaging characters, particularly the fearless and feisty heroine, Eden Murdoch, together with a well-paced, suspenseful plot make for a fine historical adventure yarn in a this sequel to Black's An Uncommon Enemy." - Publishers Weekly

If you are interested in Native Americans, and I am (sure I was one in a much earlier life) this is a great story, told well by a clever writer. As it was the sequel to An Uncommon Enemy, which is also a good story of 19th century West, it is a must - although both novels can stand alone and be read without having to read each of them to get the characters' motives etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars great work of historical fiction 12 Sep 2002
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
In 1879, Brad Randall, the Commissioner for Indian Affairs feels ineffectual in his post because he knows how the Indians are being treated and is in no position to help them. When he finds out his wife is cheating on him with his assistant, he leaves her and journeys out west, hoping to help the Native-Americans. He also wants to find Eden Murdoch who he has not seen or heard from in ten years to tell her the son she thought died is very much alive.

When the two ex-lovers meet, Eden is in jail protecting the fact that the Indians are no longer allowed near Solomon Spring, a sacred site to many tribes. He gets her out of jail and takes her to see her son who is not pleased to see her because her husband, Lawrence Murdoch has found him first and fed him lies about her. When Lawrence is found dead, Brad confesses to his murder but the only one who doesn't believe him is Eden who intends to find the real killer before her lover hangs.

SOLOMON SPRING is a great work of historical fiction and an equally good historical mystery. Through the characters eyes we are able to see the plight of the Indians and their courage in the face of adversity. The romance between the two protagonists is quite good but takes a back seat to the who-done it. Michelle Black is a talented writer who will appeal to readers of mystery, romance and history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovable heroes, despicable villians, interesting times... 24 Mar 2003
By Winfield Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was my first exposure to a book by this author, and I was very pleased. The story covers a period of time interesting to me and in an area near my home. The heroes are good people with normal character flaws, and the villians are the kind of people you can easily hate. The story is tied in to real times and real events. The author is obviously very familiar with the Cheyenne Indians and the frontier during the latter 1800's. A spellbinding book.

I thought the author did a very good job of incorporating a great story with strong life lessons. The characters were realistic and the story line believable. I have recommended it to many of my fellow ereaders.
