I first discovered this book at my local library in 1998 and was so touched by it that I sought it out again nearly 10 years later though I could remember neither the author nor the title. This is the story of a young women raised in high society who, after discovering that her father's fortune was obtained at the hands of coal miners, abandons her life of ease to try and make the world a better place. This is a journey that takes her to the coal mines of Kentucky, Spain and England. Though she is not able to make sweeping changes, the heroine has an immense and positive effect on those closest to her. ( )
