Song of the Blackbird DB Michaels

Healing must start from within…

Desperate to reconnect with her half-brother, Emma Edwards takes her new medical training and secures a doctor’s job at the prison where he’s serving a sentence. But what she finds there is worse than she ever imagined…tough rules and even tougher men, gangs powered by drug money and corruption. Emma must find a way to keep her brother alive until he’s freed even if that means lying to the one man she should be able to trust…

Unless you find someone to share your pain…

Warden Maxim Chambers doesn’t believe a woman should be working in a penitentiary, especially one like Emma – a woman even a hardened man like him can’t get off his mind. He’s spent too many years building walls around his heart to let himself care about anyone. Yet when Emma is almost hurt in a prison assault, Maxim can’t deny his feelings for her. But what is the connection between Emma and the prisoner named Sam?

And accept your past.

When secrets are revealed, danger and death run through the prison. Only the truth can save Emma and Maxim…if it’s not too late.

Song of the Blackbird immerses you in a whole new world – a gritty, violent world where things you have always believed turn out not to be true. It is a compelling story of sorrow and loss, of hope and second chances, and most of all, of the power of love.


Received this book from netgally and the publisher in exchange for an honest review this has in no way affected my opinion

This is the first I have read by D.B. Michaels and have to say this was definitely intriguing for me. Having a brother in prison I loved that D.B. Michaels went in depth in the workings of a prison. Knowing that there is corruption, drugs and betrayal is just heartbreaking. In some ways I hated Maxim for not believing in his inmates always turning about without a benefit of a doubt. Dr. Emma is like a modern day Florence Nightingale trying to help her brother and others in the prison but feels like a failure in so many ways. D.B. Michaels did a beautiful job showing us two different people fighting for the same thing yet are afraid to show their real identities towards each other. Loved it cannot wait to see what else D.B. Michaels has in store for us
