3.5 late 1980's, a miner's strike and the death of a young toddler bring ugly suspicions to a head.. Violence, strike breakers, a lifetime of camaraderie threatens further violence.
Clare, a young reporter, has constantly been reminded not to become part of the story, to remain professionally courteous, keeping information, something she finds hard to do. While investigating the case she becomes close to a young girl, a girl that wants nothing to do with her.
Enjoyed Clare's character, her courage and brashness, she makes a good heroine to cast your faith on. Where this case will lead will change something irrevocable and even affect her life and job.
Good solid read, with some gritty atmosphere.
