  • Olivia's Mine on May 08, 2011

    Olivia’s Mine is a great story as well as a detailed look at early 20th century life in the North West. The reader is quickly drawn into a cast of engaging characters and, along with them, struggles through a barrage of disasters and personal struggles. The author’s sincere love for the local area is obvious. I definitely recommend it.
