In the early 1700s, a Seneca Indian brutally murdered two of his own tribe – the woman he loved and the man who had won her heart.

By the mid-1800s, forests were cleared and land was sectioned off into counties, towns and villages. Coldspring became a town within Cattaraugus County, New York. William Bourne, the young stepson of a settler, brutally murdered his stepfather and his stepfather’s wife.

On March 5, 1935, on that very same land, another woman and the man she loved were brutally murdered by Freddy Lindsay in a fit of passion and jealousy. That woman, Bernice Kenyon Farnsworth, was the great aunt of author Cheri Mancuso.

Coldspring is the first volume in a 3-book series based on actual events, trial records, newspaper clippings, and family history. Coldspring: The Trial has been published. Coldspring: The Resolution will be available soon.
