Coal River review ´ 3 Ls as paid Though Emma's actions draw ire from the mine owner and police captain they lead to an alliance with a charismatic miner who offers to help her expose the truth And as the lines blur between what is legal and what is just Emma must risk everything to follow her conscience An emotional compelling novel that rings with authenticity Coal River is a deft and honest portrait of resilience in the face of hardship and of the simple acts of courage that can change everythi When a new author writes two incredibly wonderful books What She Left Behind and The Plum Tree and the third one is just so so I feel let down This is one of those books However it was a very good look the coal mines and the black lung disease that was common with the workers then and still is The author particularly focuses on the heart breaking stories of young boys called the breaker boys who worked in the mines and the horrible life they were exposed to The novel starts in the early 1900s at a slow pace and gradually builds into a story about the life of Emma Molloy who loses both of her parents in a New York City theatre fire The only option left opened to her was to go back to Coal River Pennsylvania and live with her aunt and uncle She desperately wants to get away from the town that stirs memories of her brother who drowned several years before Her aunt and uncle force her to work at the company store without pay It is here that she learns of the suffering families and the children who are referred to as the breaker boys They are forced to work long hours in the mines The astonishing misery they go through as they shift through the coal looking for rocks which leaves extremely painful cuts on their hands is deplorable Emma is determined to help the forlorn families and improve the working conditions of the breaker boys Why three stars I actually feel compelled to give it 3 12 stars but couldn t uite make it to 4 The story was slow moving and the character development didn t pull at my heartstrings like it should have I know had I read it instead of listening to an audiobook I would have skimmed the pages trying to get to the meat of the story There was a vague love affair that was never developed and I for one would like to have seen it part of the story instead of hanging in the air For anyone interested in the time period and the breaker boys here is an excellent video on You Tube is a very old photo of my Papaw grandfather and his coworkers in the North Carolina coal mines in the early 1900s and he is in the middle I don t know if he was a breaker boy because it wasn t talked about in our family I suspect he was I only acuired this photo after my grandparents deaths
