(From the publisher):
From the mining shanty towns of West Virginia comes this moving and passionate saga of a family, a community, and a way of life all but gone. In this coal-smudged place, three people hopelessly intertwined in love and politics live in the shadow of the dying mines and the doomed union movement.
Dillon, a tireless union man like his father, accepts nothing less than total commitment to the cause; Rachel, his cousin and lifelong love, has the courage he wants, but refused to let him know it; their child, Jackie, a fighting daughter of the mines, understands them both - and her own limitations - only too well.
