If someone had asked Sherlock Holmes later in the year, there is little doubt that he would have said his life began that spring day in 1871 when he met Violet Rushdale upon the moors and ended in the winter some months distant. His mother would have disputed the former claim, and many, both friend and foe, would come to deny the latter. Yet what happened that year nearly cost him his life and his sanity, and strongly influenced the man he was to become. It is well known that the toughest steel that makes the sharpest swords must be plunged into the fire, then beaten and reshaped. So it is as well with the best and wisest of men.

A story of the sevente...

A story of the seventeen year old Sherlock Holmes - the highly intelligent and somewhat misunderstood youngest son of a very demanding father. The lonely Sherlock finds a friend when he offers to help Violet Rushdale, the daughter of one of his father's tenant farmers, as she struggles to provide for herself and her widowed alcoholic father. As the young pair share their brief moments of free time, love blossoms. If this were merely a story of first love, it would be (and is) quite charming. But this is Sherlock Holmes we're talking about, so we know the lovers' course will not be a smooth one. Enter Squire Holmes' choice of tutor for young Sherlock - the mysterious Professor Moriarty. A thrilling battle of wits and wills ensues, replete with angry fathers, a stormy night on the moors, the threat of madness, and the beginnings of drug addiction. Possible origins of several facets of the Sherlock Holmes ouevre are introduced, making the story ever more fascinating. Highly recommended for fans of Sherlock Holmes (of course), but also for those who enjoy the Brontes and historical fiction set in the 19th century. A great read.
