A sweeping tale of a Holland, Michigan, Dutch schoolteacher and an Upper Peninsula Finnish copper miner during the turbulent times of the 1913 Keweenaw Peninsula copper miner’s strike and their daughter Kiasa, named for a victim of Calumet’s Italian Hall Tragedy. Born of the Michigan copper mines, Kaisa’s saga traces her life to the 1930s oil boomtown of Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, where her life is changed by Michigan’s worst oilfield disaster. At Mackinac Island, Michigan, her chance encounter with a member of the wealthy Maurice family ultimately leads her to Jekyll Island, Georgia, in 1942. At Jekyll Island, where the Millionaires Club is breaking up because of the Nazi U-Boat threat to members’ safety, Kaisa finds love and intrigue.
