Présentation de l'éditeur

Some secrets won't stay buried with the dead
… not even under a mountain.

Twenty-seven men died when the Harlan #7 Coal Mine exploded in 1981. Only two miners made it out alive. But the survivors harbored horrifying secrets about the part they played in another tragedy that happened deep in the guts of the mountain that day AFTER the explosion.

Guilt and shame over what he did drove Will Gribbins into a whiskey bottle and left him a homeless, under-a-bridge drunk for two decades. Now, he has come home to the mountains for the memorial service on the twentieth anniversary of the disaster, determined to confess what he did. Seeking impossible forgiveness.

But instead of atonement, his arrival lights a fuse of retribution and insanity he could never have foreseen, a madness that will explode in a disaster far worse than the first. And this time it won’t be an accident. This time, it will be murder.

When the fate of a crew of innocent miners is again placed in his hands, is Will man enough to save them--even if it means he must face the horror he's been running away from all these years? Or must he finally pay the debt of his betrayal— buried alive in a mile-deep hole, gasping for breath in the dark until there’s no air left?

Interview with the Author

Q - What’s so special about Black Sunshine?

A - It’s real life on paper. It’s been a Kindle bestseller because the characters in the novel come to life on the page—like the family next door in a small town. The story is gripping, the action nail-biting.

Q - Is this a psychological suspense story or a paranormal thriller?

A - It's both and neither. There are elements of psychological suspense and elements of a paranormal thriller--one of the characters is psychic. But the book is inspirational, a kinder/gentler suspense story that deals with regret, redemption and forgiveness. That's not typical mystery/thriller contemporary fiction.

Q - So one of the characters is a psychic?

A - Not in the classic sense. A mentally challenged boy has paranormal abilities. But he doesn't see the future. He carves it.

Q - It's a mystery, too, though--right?

A - Absolutely. The mystery centers around what really happened in the coal mine the day of the disaster--what happened after the explosion. All good thrillers and suspense books have an element of mystery--a psychological game of cat and mouse to keep you guessing. What's unique about Black Sunshine is the inspirational themes interwoven with the suspense. I think contemporary fiction fears being labeled sappy if the storyline is uplifting.

Q - Is this a Christian book?

A - There is spirituality in it--not religion--themes of love and forgiveness that touch the soul of readers of a any faith--or no faith at all.

Q - So, why should readers give this book a try?

A - Because it’s a book that will break your heart. And then put it back together again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Welcome Home, Will, Thank You, Ninie! 19 mars 2012
Par Wolfe Moffat - Publié sur
If there's one author who is always welcome in my home, that author would be Ninie Hammon. She comes up with something different through every story, whether a tornado is ready to hit, or a marijuana grower is almost out on his own luck, this girl gets your attention. And now she dares to take you into the depths of Kentucky coal mines. Welcome to Aintree Hollow.

But to Will Gribbins, just how warm of a welcome will he recieve in this town? He worked in the mines, and his memories are anything but warm and fuzzy. But don't you be telling Granny Sparrow that Will ain't got no place back home! He's more'n welcome, and she sees to it. Welcome home, Will! And oh, welcome back some memories, some treasured, some that Will would just rather forget. That's why he lived his life in a bourbon bottle for quite some time. Wouldn't ya know it? There's a kid living with Granny who reminds Will of Ricky Dan, and that reminder is Jamey Boy.

Seeing life through Jamey's eyes, and through his coal carvings, is breathtaking. And Will sees reminders of his own past in some of those precious carvings. Will Gribbons is back in mining country for a reason. Even if that reason might kill him.

Once again, we are introduced to characters that only Ninie Hammon could make come alive! And we're actually allowed to feel some emotion through these stories, you know. If you haven't read Ninie Hammon yet, I hope you don't wait for the opportunity any longer. She's a pleasure to read, and all I can say is thank you! Thanks, Ninie!

A natural disaster. A family tragedy. And a horrific deception.

Ninie Hammon once again uses her storytelling prowess to unfold the drama of a small town in the mountains of Kentucky, where twenty years earlier an explosion killed 27 men working in the coal mines. Now, as the town commemorates that tragic event, the two survivors come toe to toe and face the dark truths of that day.

Will Gribbins is one of those survivors, a man who left Aintree Hollow and lost himself in the Navy and in the bottom of a bottle. In doing so, he broke an unspoken promise and left the other survivor, Lloyd, to deal with the guilt and the town's grief. The childhood friendship between these two men is put to the test when they confront each other after two decades. Both harbor secrets. Both wish to remedy the past in their own ways. As their fateful choices lead to a deadly final encounter deep in Black Mountain, there is only one person capable of mining their secrets for the family to see. This person is a mentally challenged young man named Jamey Boy, a teenager who carves images from jet-black coal, images that are prescient and prophetic. Jamey Boy has no idea that his art will peel back layers of deception, and no idea that he too will be forced to make a fateful choice.

I've read two novels based in the world of modern American mining, "Black Sunshine" and Dale Cramer's "Bad Ground." Both are on my list of favorite books. Both take time digging deep into the characters and settings, but churn up incredible things for those patient enough to discover treasure. Hammon captures the voices of backwoods Kentucky with great skill and warmth. Her research adds so much depth to her novels, without becoming burdensome. And in the end, she always twists and turns the plot, adds elements of mystery and suspense, and leaves us with life lessons that feel as genuine as the characters.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Sometimes gripping tale of a mine disaster's results 5 octobre 2012
Par John H. Manhold - Publié sur

Black Sunshine ISBN9781936164400, Bay Forest Books, e-book edition by Nini Hammon is a story of mining in Eastern Kentucky and the effect of a horrendous mine disaster upon various members of one family involved.
Will Gribbins is one of only two survivors of the mine disaster. He wanders away to indulge in heavy drinking, to a hitch in the navy, to life as a derelict where he suffers a life-threatening condition from which he is saved and regains consciousness in a hospital. Here, a kind MedTech introduces him to AA and sobriety. He decides that he must return home to his hillbilly roots and adoptive mother and divulge a secret from the mine disaster that he can no longer endure. He returns, is accepted back into what is left of the family, but cannot bring himself to divulge the secret. In part his hesitancy results from having to deal with the other family members who also have almost insurmountable problems.
The story starts rather slowly, but accelerates with alternating throwback sections, into a tale of miners and their families that is gripping at times as it flirts with the reason for Will's guilt. It also provides a wealth of interesting details of work-a-day mining and of the almost infinite problems these workers face daily. The characters are well defined and easily worthy of empathy. The only feature that detracts from the overall impact of the story is the ending. It is well done in a manner that will make readers happy, but unfortunately as presented, appears to be too `drawn out' so as to detract somewhat from the story's overall impact. Reviewed by John H. Manhold, award winning fiction/non-fiction author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Grabbed my Interest 1 octobre 2012
Par Cathy - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Black Sunshine took a subject, coal mining, that I had little interest in or knowledge of, and submerged me in a culture, an occupation, a region and beautifully rounded characters. There was just enough information about the specifics of mining to keep the story moving and to explain the "who and how done it" without becoming tedious. The characters felt authentic, from the flawed and struggling protagonist to the mentally handicapped but fully-dimensional Jamie, an artist-savant with clairvoyant abilities. Even Granny, the revered wife/mother/grandmother who had persevered through tragedy, was shown as far more than a stereotyped "hillbilly" or an always-perfect Madonna. Secondary characters were equally well developed, and the while there was some predictability in the ultimate climax, it felt right for the story.
Black Sunshine made me long to follow these characters into the future.

Black Sunshine was difficult in the beginning because of the hillbilly "accent". It took awhile for me to
really understand what was being said. Gradually everything just fell into place and I didn't give a second
thought to the dialogue. The characters in the book were "real" to me. I felt as if I knew each and every
one of them personally and, for the most part, liked them. Granny Sparrow was like no heroine I have ever
read about and I loved her. I have yet to finish this book but can hardly wait for the conclusion. I suspect
how it ends but Ms. Hammon is quite adept at fooling me. Definitely recommend this book.
One note: Ms. Hammon, there is no such thing as a crochet needle...they are called crochet hooks and only
one is used at a time whereas; knitting needles require two or more to knit an item.
