Abstract:

Melinda McCrea's dream of teaching is thwarted when her stepfather moves the family to boomtown Monte Cristo, high in the Cascade Mountains. People rave about the fabulous mineral wealth hidden in the peaks, but Melinda sees the hard, dangerous, and low-paying work. She vows she'll never marry a miner. When Monte Cristo's new schoolteacher resigns, life changes. Though she doesn't't have the necessary education, Melinda is asked to fill in. Meanwhile, disgruntled miners blame the Cornish newcomers for the loss of their jobs. To push his agenda, their leader Anton Cole arranges an "accidental" mine explosion. Quin Chenoweth, the guardian of Melinda's young friend, Evan, is a voice for reason in the fledgling union movement. He and other miners are trapped by the explosion. While waiting and fearing the worst. Melinda realizes the depth of her feelings for Quin. That fall floods wreck the railroad and isolate the town. The people flee on foot. Quin takes Melinda and Evan to safety in the new city of Everett. He asks her to marry him. Then an unexpected turn of events puts college within Melinda's reach. Will she pursue her dream or choose an uncertain future with her two loves?--Amazon.com.
