Summary
1924, shortly before daybreak in War, West Virginia, a passing train derails and spills an avalanche of coal over Emma Palmisano's house, trapping her sleeping family inside. Railroad man Caleb Sypher digs her out-- and marries her a week later. Caleb delivers her from the gritty coal camp to 47 acres of pristine Virginia mountain farmland. As we follow the resulting generations, we discover the nature of power and pride, love and loss, and how one impoverished family endures estrangement from the land and each other in order to unearth the rich seams of forgiveness
