    One thought on “Something So Divine”

    1. This is my latest release, a historical mystery set in Pennsylvania in the 1890s. I'd prefer to have readers give the rating, but if you can't like your own work

    2. This story of murder and hard personal choices is a solid mystery and a good read. Set in rural Pennsylvania in the 1890s, the characters are still relatable and feel fresh. Not exactly a sequel, but set in the same time and place as many of the author's other stories of hard people and hard times. Well worth the read.

    3. A great whodunnit murder mystery set in 1890's. Dim witted Ned is accused of killing a girl whom he adored.

    4. A young girl is found dead, and suspicion rising almost to the level of lynching falls on the mentally-challenged young man known to be obsessed with her. The county investigator must, while holding off mob vengeance, find the killer, who he increasingly suspects is someone else.John Lindermuth has written a poignant novel, set in 1897 Pennsylvania, that touches on the great forces of human experiences--love, violence, compassion, selfishness--while weaving a mystery that draws one irresistibly [...]

    6. J.R. Lindermuth strikes again with a great historical novel of murder, morality, and the search for justice in late nineteenth century rural Pennsylvania. This is territory the author knows well, having spent much of his life among the hills and valleys of anthracite coal country. The plot involves the heinous murder of local beauty Susannah Schaeffer and the subsequent arrest and prosecution of slow-witted Ned Gebhardt for the crime. Many of the locals of the small community want to expedite ju [...]

    7. Thank you to J. R. Lindermuth for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.Something So Divine set the scene right from the start, in a small country village where everyone knows everyone and the residents have strong opinions about the others there including the main character Ned. I wouldn't describe it as a murder mystery because it's obvious who did what from the start, rather the reader is taken on a journey of the aftermath of the murder and impact on those involved.I [...]
