From the Author
We made the trip twice, first strictly as a vacation, and the second as a research trip for me, if not for my DH. At one point, he threatened to divorce me if I dragged him through one more mining museum!
My favorite spot, Grass Valley, is a charming town with the attraction of having the wonderful Empire Mine State Historic Park, a fascinating glimpse into the lives of 19th century miners.
Grass Valley was especially interesting to me because of the large Cornish population in the 19th century. This area had deep gold veins that couldn't be panned. The Cornish miners were encouraged to come because of their experience in the tin mines of Cornwall, which were petering out. To this day, the Cornish pasty is a local treat, and the city still celebrates a Cornish Christmas. The Cornish play a major part in my novel, starting with my heroine, Lily.
