Overview

Stony Point tells the story of a woman who succeeds in doing things at a time when custom restricts her from doing anything. In 1903, shortly after the Frank slide, a newspaper reporter vanishes from a mining town in the Crowsnest Pass. Lucille travels to Stony Point in search of her sister's husband. She finds a town under the heel of a ruthless mine owner who has the local Mounted Policeman and a corrupt businessman in his pocket. Determined to find Stanley Birch, Lucille turns Stony Point upside-down. She fights not only the mine owner and his lackeys, but a system that protects the interests of the rich over the working class and men over women. Her struggle brings her a new purpose in life and a bitter truth.

Reviews

"I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It features a brave and likeable female protagonist who is not afraid to do battle with fearsome old-boys'-club mining villains. The writing is so descriptive that I felt as if I really was in a mining town in Alberta in 1903. There's lots of action, a dose of lovely romance, a bunch of well-rounded characters and the swift-moving plot makes for a really good read! It's also a great reminder how much life has changed for women, since that time." - Lisa de Nikolits, author of The Witchdoctor's Bones
