Summary
Bestselling author Jennifer Haigh returns to the Pennsylvania town and the conflicting forces at its heart - hope and desperation, greed and power, big business and small-town families. Forty years ago, Bakerton coal fueled the country. Then the mines closed, and the town wore away. Now Bakerton has been granted a surprise third act: it sits squarely atop the Marcellus Shale, a massive deposit of natural gas. Told through a cast of characters whose lives are increasingly bound by the opposing interests that underpin the national debate, this novel depicts a community blessed and cursed by its natural resources
Summary
A latest tale set in the Pennsylvania town depicted in Baker Towers finds an agreement to lease mineral rights to frackers causing unexpected complications in the life of farmer Rich Devilin, his family members and his neighbors throughout Bakerton
