They came into being, these corps, and you at home know nothing of the labour and travail that attended the birth.
Red Helmet by Homer Hickham. Hickham grew up in the coal fields of West Virginia.
Although he went away and learned rocket science, he has become the unofficial author in residence for the state of WV. She, a New Yorker, meets and too quickly marries the manager of a WV coal mine.
Neither wants to move. Through a chain of circumstances, she assigns herself the task of going to WV and learning to be a coal miner Her almost-ex-by-this-time is about to be fired.
She is definitely a woman of agency. By the way, there is a mystery to solve, a mystery with a killer. I think it would be a good book club book. Lots of WV, coal mining, and a little bit of love story not too much. I had something to do with that event, so it warmed my heart to hear the recording of it.
She knows even less about love. The novel is set in the hills of West Virginia and deals with the romantic entanglements of a tough-as-nails New York businesswoman and a ruggedly handsome mine superintendent.
I just think that Hickam never managed to make it work. I never felt like Hickam had enough of a grasp on her character to make me believe in her transformation or care about her character.
The saving grace of the book is the second part, which discusses in depth the work that coal miners do and what life is like in a small mining town. If only the rest of the book had fared as well.
I had it sitting on my "to-be-read" shelf for more than a year before I finally began reading it.
