Jennifer Haigh returns to the vividly imagined world of Bakerton, Pennsylvania, a coal-mining town that has been rocked by decades of painful transition. With a revolving cast of characters, these stories explore how our roots --- the families and places in which we are raised --- shape the people we eventually become.

by Jennifer Haigh - Fiction

Bakerton is a community of company houses and church festivals, of union squabbles and firemen's parades.  For its tight-knit citizens -- and the five children of the Novak family -- the 1940s will be a decade of excitement, tragedy, and stunning change. Baker Towers is a family saga and a love story, a hymn to a time and place long gone.
