Both of these titles offer sagas of New England families in the 1800s. If a Lion illustrates a lack of communication as a young Massachussetts missionary couple attempt to convert Blackfoot Indians to Christianity. Preacher Marcus, however, falls in love with an Indian woman and must pay a hefty price (LJ 11/1/70). The Quarry (1947) traces several generations of Vermont miners from the Civil War to World War I.
