Read from March 12 to 20, 2012

3.5 I really identified quite a bit with this novel. Reminded me so much of my neighborhood in Chicago, how everyone knew each other and knew everyone else's business as well. This is about a mining town and the book follows a particular family, headed by Rose, who I really liked. She was an Italian but marries a Polish man. They have five children and her husband works in the mines. It is also about the death of a town and a way of life, when the mine fails things in town start closing down and soon enough everyone moves away. Except for Lucy and Rose I didn't really care for any of the other family members but it was very interesting reading and I did enjoy it.
