A special treat for Kindle Nation readers who recall the haunting story of Eden Murdoch in Michelle Black’s bestselling AN UNCOMMON ENEMY!

Now, in her sequel Solomon Spring, Eden and her true love Brad cross paths in their separate attempts to save the Cheyenne nation from the disinterest of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the over-interest of unscrupulous businessmen. Add in a predatory ex-husband, a long-lost child and a murder and you get a powerful work of historical fiction…

“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 this sequel to Black’s An Uncommon Enemy (2001).”
–Publishers Weekly

Lovable heroes, despicable villians, interesting times…

Here’s the set-up according to Booklist’s Sue O’Brien:

“In 1878, Commissioner of Indian Affairs Brad Randall heads west to reunite his former lover Eden Murdoch with her long-lost son. Captured by the Cheyenne while fleeing from her abusive husband, Eden has been rescued but remains sympathetic to her former tribe, whose ways she has come to respect. When the owner of Solomon Spring, sacred to the local Indians, decides to build an exclusive spa on the site, Eden creates powerful enemies when she fights to protect the spring. After an altercation with her former husband, she and Brad become the chief suspects when he is murdered. When Brad is sentenced to hang for the crime, Eden fights to save him. Eden is an unconventional, independent, principled heroine, and Brad is a compassionate man who takes his work seriously. The strong characters, the love between the two leads, the vivid details of life in the West in the late 1800s, and an engaging plot combine to make this an absorbing historical mystery.”

What the Reviewers Say
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.”
–Harriet Klausner, #1 Reviewer

“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.”
–Winfield Scott

“This is an excellent way to learn about the Northern Cheyennes’ relocation to the Indian Territory, and their failed attempt to return to their northern homelands. Also well portrayed is the hard scrabble life on Kansas’ windy winter prairie, the rough-and-ready frontier justice, and society’s disapprobation toward a woman like Eden who does not follow the accepted norms for white women of her class.”
–Lyn Reese
