We just read this great book! We couldn’t put it down.
The book is Mining for Justice by best-selling author Kathleen Ernst. It is a riveting mystery set in Mineral Point, WI. We encourage you to read it. Buy it as a gift. Get it signed by the author. She’ll be here all weekend as part of the 25th Annual Cornish Fest.
Kathleen will be speaking at the Opera House at 11:00am on Saturday, September 30, 2017. She will then be meeting readers and signing books at Pendarvis from 1-5pm, and the Walker House from 5:30pm-8pm. On Sunday, she will be making a presentation and signing more books at the Pendarvis Education Center from 11:00-12:00.
Mining for Justice is the eighth book in the popular Chloe Ellefson series. This historical fiction mystery is set in two time periods — a week in 1983, and in the early days of Mineral Point mining. The book moves seamlessly between the two time periods, and the multiple plot lines grab you from the beginning. Reading Mining for Justice is an enjoyable way to learn more about the history of our town.
We are fortunate that Kathleen chose Mineral Point as the setting for her latest book. She captures the historic charm of our town, just as she did when she wrote this blog post about the wonders of Winter in Mineral Point. During that visit, she took this haunting picture of the Gundry House and said “I am so going to write a book set in Mineral Point one day!” Happily, that day is here.
Kathleen is a two-time winner of a Shake Rag Alley Winter Writers Residency. The residency program, which is still going strong, is designed to provide writers with a peaceful retreat in an inspiring setting. As you read Kathleen”s book we think you’ll see that our lovely little town provided some inspiration for a great novel.
