Romance Book Review: The Redemption of Micah

Author: Beth Williamson
Series Connection: The Education of Madeline
ISBN 978-0-7582-3471-1
Genre: Western Romance/Historical/Suspense


This is twice now I've been pleasantly surprised when reading one of Beth Williamson's books. Not because of Beth, but because I generally haven't been able to get into historical western romance. The Redemption of Micah has been another exception though to that rule though.

In the The Education of Madeline readers met Micah and Eppie. Micah came down from the mountain in which he had lived as a hermit to help his friend Madeline protect her home, herself and the man Madeline loved. Eppie is Madeline's best friend. For months Micah and Eppie have secretly been meeting each other in the dark. Micah wants to marry Eppie but she refuses him and the two have a big fight. When he comes to help his friend Madeline, Eppie and Micah reunite. Everything comes crashing down on them, however, when Eppie steps in front of Micah when they are being attacked.

Not realizing that she is pregnant when she goes into a coma, Eppie is surprised three years later when she wakes to find herself a mother of a young girl. Even more of a surprise is finding out that she has completely lost her memory. As she and her family get to know each other again, they don't realize that their is an unknown force who will do anything to split up their family. Eppie and Micah need to work together to save themselves and their little daughter.

Good story line and great lead and supporting characters make this book a definite worthwhile read for those who enjoy romance, battered heros and even a little western history.

Plum Creek, Colorado 1875


Nothing about the room that Eppie awakens in feels like home—not the furnishings, the ill-fitting clothes, or the Colorado sunlight streaming in through the windows. And certainly not the stranger with long dark hair and silver eyes who claims to have been waiting for her for three long years.

Micah Spalding has spent each day hoping that Eppie would open her eyes and return to him. Yet the Eppie he loved was spirited and outspoken—utterly different to this reserved, aloof woman. Since her injury, Eppie has no memory of Micah or their daughter, or of a passion that was powerful enough to defy every convention. And though his scent and touch trigger something deep within her, Eppie can’t bring herself to believe in him.

Once, when war between his countrymen had almost broken him, Eppie brought Micah back to life. Now he must find a way to reach through the distance between them and remind her of everything they once shared, and prove that he has belief enough for both of them…
