We follow that stories of Rita and George who both want nothing more than to get out of the monotonous and rough life of the mining town. Both residents of Crag Street, George and Rita's lives become intertwined when they are children. We follow them throughout the years as Rita becomes an ambitious business woman and George leads the miner's union.
The story flows nicely through several decades and wonderfully written characters fill the book; the wives and mothers who spend all day collecting gossip were just right! George and Rita quickly become characters you root for, even as they make their mistakes.
