Power Reviewer Suzanne (06/28/12)

A family...
The book takes place after WWII in Bakerton, Pennsylvania, a mining town. The Italian and Polish immigrant miners live within the company confines without much of a future. The Towers are two huge piles of mine waste that play a part in the background of the town’s story. We follow the five children of deceased Stanley Novak and his widow, Rose. The family comes and goes during the three decades of the story, each returning to the home periodically, some staying and a few living away.

I liked the book. Much is going on, yet the series of events are separate, holding interest until the very end.
