Summary
As a child, Emma Malloy left isolated Coal River, Pennsylvania, vowing never to return. In 1912, orphaned and penniless at nineteen, she accepts a train ticket from her aunt and uncle and travels back to the rough-hewn community. Treated like a servant by her relatives, Emma works for free in the company store. There, miners and their impoverished families must pay inflated prices for food, clothing, and tools, while those who owe money are turned away to starve. As the lines blur between what is legal and what is just, Emma must risk everything to follow her conscience
