Award-winning author, Angela Morrison, brings you a first love story imagined from her own emigrant heritage.
Will Glover cuts coal from dawn to dusk in a 19th century, Scottish pit. When his father commits the Glovers to a mining venture in New Scotia, Will and Lucie, the only lass he’ll ever love, run off to wed, but Lucie’s father, who plans to marry her to an aging tyrant, hunts them down and beats Will senseless.
Will is forced to leave Scotland. “I’ll no go, I’ll no go, I’ll no go,” his heart protests as Lucie’s frantic, waving figure disappears in the mist. Will vows to return, but first he must survive seasickness, storms, starvation, and a dangerous mine in an untamed land. Then one devastating letter dashes all his dreams.
