Editorial Reviews

http://vampirekiss1967.blogspot.com/2011/09/review-of-black-diamond.html - Eva Coppersmith
“This is an excellent story of small town legends being brought to life with reality. The train that used to travel the bridge closed down years ago. The owner of the train was the devil in disguise and had a reputation for taking advantage of his employees, as well as, their families. Legend has it that Lloyd Fletcher, now roams the tracts and his train still travels. Anyone who is unfortunate enough to connect with the train may not survive intact."

    Good For Younger Readers

    "Black Diamond" would be a suitable book for teens and tweens, although it could be enjoyed by adults, too. Josie is a misfit and has accepted that, but still her outward tendencies betray her attitude and show us she does want to fit in, in some way. In the story, she starts out fairly alone in life, but as the story builds and the events happen, she becomes entangled in mysteries in the past and in her own family.
