This novel follows different characters and their lives in an old mining community I have to say the timing of reading this book couldn't have been perfect I recently moved to a small town in Nevada that was founded upon copper mines The historical aspects of the book was what I loved I loved reading the depictions of life back then There's nothing like a fictional novel that better than any history book could seems to paint such a brilliant picture of what it might have been like to live back then I also did like how the novel jumps around from different pespectives developing different characters The reason why I gave 3 stars though is that some of the characters have these lascivious encounters that just felt totally unnecessary and did nothing for the book in my opinion The childbirth scenes I thought were actually pretty amazing and poignant so there was a lot that was really beautiful in this novel Ultimately though I'm not sure if I'd recommend it because of those other moments that kind of ruined the whole experience of the book for me
