Summary
After a disastrous fire in an isolated silver mining town in 1970s Idaho, this novel imagines the fates of a handful of survivors and their loved ones - Jordan, a young widow with twin children; David, a college student trying to make a life for himself in another town; Lionel, a lifelong hard-rock miner - as they struggle to come to terms with the loss. It's a tough, hard-working, hard-drinking town, a town of whores and priests and bar fights, but nobody's tough enough to get through this undamaged
