John Broderick, heir of the Clonmere estate, starts a copper mine on Hungry Hill. Immediately a Hatfield-McCoy type feud restarts with the Dovovans from whom the land had been taken a generation before: a feud that will trouble generations to come. The story follows five generations of heirs, each having their own tragedy. After the first part (Copper John), there is little said about the mine itself; all revolves around the ⦠family, much of which is left to the imagination. The mine finally closes during the fifth generation. One hundred years after the founding of the mine, Clonmere shares a fate with Manderley and Thornfield Manor. The book was rather a let down after reading âRebecca.â
