Publisher Description

A novel of warmth and true feeling, The Well and the Mine explores the value of community, charity, family, and hope that we can give each other during a time of hardship. Look out for Phillips's new novel, Fierce Kingdom

In a small Alabama coal-mining town during the summer of 1931, nine-year-old Tess Moore sits on her back porch and watches a woman toss a baby into her family’s well without a word. This shocking act of violence sets in motion a chain of events that forces Tess and her older sister Virgie to look beyond their own door and learn the value of kindness and lending a helping hand. As Tess and Virgie try to solve the mystery of the well, an accident puts their seven-year-old brother’s life in danger, forcing the Moore family to come to a new understanding of the power of love and compassion.

What a gem!

Effortless, timeless and engaging. The characters are believable and stay with you long after the book is back on the shelf. Gin Phillips proves to her fellow writers that one does not need to dig deep into the toolbox of the English language to create elegance.
