9780803725119: A Diamond in the Dust

Coal mining, dreams, tough times, and a bright spirit all combine within the pages of this vivid, romantic tale. The year is 1905, but little of the new century's optimism has made its way to the hardscrabble mining town of Buckeye City. Here sixteen-year-old Katy Sollis finds herself trying to reach for a future that's as hard to grab on to as a handful of coal dust. Flavored with the rural tang and spirit of mining life, A Diamond in the Dust takes readers into a year of first love, and struggles fought both at home and within Katy's own mind and heart. A journey of its particular time and place, it's also a story for all who've been at that point when past and future are just inches apart-and the time to reach for dreams is now.
