A NovelBook - 2014
Stony Point tells the story of a woman who succeeds in doing things at a time when custom restricts her from doing anything. In 1903, shortly after the Frank slide, a newspaper reporter vanishes from a mining town in the Crowsnest Pass. Lucille travels to Stony Point in search of her sister's husband. She finds a town under the heel of a ruthless mine owner who has the local Mounted Policeman and a corrupt businessman in his pocket. Determined to find Stanley Birch, Lucille turns Stony Point upside-down. She fights not only the mine owner and his lackeys, but a system that protects the interests of the rich over the working class and men over women. Her struggle brings her a new purpose in life and a bitter truth.
