Summary

The Hall family live under the brooding shadow of the Black Mountains, in the mining town of Hillsbridge. Charlotte, James and their seven children are independent spirits, united by strong family values. Living in a mining community is never easy, and when the shadow of impending war threatens, they must pull together to face the hardship to come. Can this close-knit family overcome whatever tragedy life throws at them?

The black mountains

What a wounded full story, written by Janet Tanner.
I could not stop listening to the hillingsdale story about the Halls family. Read by Gordon Griffin who’s voice so easy to listen to was a pleasure to hear.
