Whistle in the Dark

Whistle in the Dark

by Susan Hill Long

What Clem wants for his thirteenth birthday is a dog. What he gets is a miner’s cap. It’s the 1920s in Leadanna, Missouri, and money is tight in the Harding household. So, Clem, a gifted student and talented writer, must leave school and join Pap in the lead mines. This beautifully written coming-of-age novel shines with true characters, a vivid setting, and heart-felt relationships.
