Linked short stories revisit the town and people of Bakerton, a mining town now in decline. Each story examines a key relationship - husband, wife, daughter, son, sister, brother, father, mother, teacher, friend. And the power of place is woven into and around each story as a common thread in the characters' place of beginning or ending.

This series of short stories depicts the life and people of the small town of Bakerton, Pennsylvania and spans several decades. It is a town in decline as the years pass and the coal mines shut down. It is interesting to see the same characters reappear in several of the stories.

This collection of stories was an enjoyable read and I liked Haigh's writing style. At times, I wouldn't have minded a little more meat. But I enjoyed the journey, even when there was not as much depth as I might have wished.

The stories are loosely linked. Some of the characters recur and they all come from or live in the mining town of Bakerton, Pennsylvania. I actually thought the last story was one of the weakest, so I wish Haigh had gone out with more of a bang! Still, worth reading and I'm glad I did so.
