1913 PA Mining Town, Lives Marked by Tragedy
Grace and Owen Morgan live a hard scrabble life in the mining town of Scranton, Pennsylvania in the early 1900s . . . having already lost children to miscarriage and another daughter, Rose, the death of Daisy pushes Grace to the brink of madness . . . and alienates her from her husband, Owen and remaining daughter, Violet . . . whom she secretly blames for Daisy's death . . . I had a very hard time with the fact that the "church going" ladies of the town, all bent toward gossip, also blamed Violet, an innocent girl of eight for the accidental death of her sister . . . and my heart just broke, when Owen, Violet's daddy moved out of the house, and fell into his own desperate grief over the loss of Daisy . . . Grace's strange, yet oddly understandable and familiar relationship with Grief, weighed heavy on my heart . . . she had known him since childhood, coming and going with every tragedy, and Grace lacking the faith and strength to oust him . . . overshadowing all that was good . . .telling her lies . . . and I was so angry that no adult had the faith and conviction to come alongside her and pull her up, instead of tearing her down . . . the unlikely friendship between Violet and Stanley was a lifesaver for them both . . . a sad, sweet story, with an ending well worth the wait . . .
