-----------------------------------

A rich and intricate novel set in nineteenth-century Wigan, a town located in the coal country of Lancashire. Its protagonist, Jonathan Blair, is a mining engineer who has been chased out of Africa for stealing from the missionaries' Bible Fund in order to pay off the porter of his expedition into the interior of the Gold Coast. Blair is now down and out in London. His employer, Bishop Hannay, promises to send him back to Africa if he can find John Maypole, the curate who was engaged to his daughter, Charlotte Hannay, when he disappeared three months previously without explanation. Charlotte herself is an ill-tempered young woman who takes an instant dislike to Blair when he tries to investigate her fiance's disappearance. Other characters include assorted townspeople, miners at the Hannay family mine, and Rose Molyneux, a 'pit girl' with whom Blair falls in love.
