"The men in Chris Cander's WHISPER HOLLOW toil underground, in the dark and dangerous coal mines of West Virginia. But her women mine territory twice as dark and twice as dangerous, they mine the human heart. Love and loss, devotion and longing, hope and despair, Cander renders all of this and more through the lives of three women spanning more than fifty years. Here is a novel so full of life--of its beauty and cruelty--that I emerged from it like one of those men walking from mines she so wonderfully evokes, like a man walking from the darkness into the light."

--Peter Geye, author of THE LIGHTHOUSE ROAD
