I enjoyed the book, mainly because I knew many of the places where everything took place However, there s really not much of a story, and many of the events seem to be based on historical events, which is neither good or bad A pleasant enough read, but not sure I would have enjoyed it mu
Good It focused pretty much exclusively on mining and the details of life around the Cornish mines. What a great read if you want to go back to a different time The story is from the 1800s and keeps you wantingI discovered this book after reading Ballantyne s, Coral Island.
