Copper and candles -- Hearts and harvest -- Patterns and progress.
"Love requires change. Withing the industrial boom during the turn of the twentieth century, three Michigan women react differently to their rapidly changing worlds. Felicity Chambers trades her society gowns for poor rags, swapping lifestyles with a sick woman in the factory district. But when she meets Brandt Lawson from the copper refinery, will her noble deed lead to heartache? Annabelle Lawson takes food to the potato pickers in her father's field and meets William Berringer, a victim of the 1893 financial crash. Can they break through society's stigma when romance blooms? Shannon Delaney's belief that industrial progress is doomed to fail is confirmed by the sinking of the Titanic and when Jacob Berringer's Model-T almost runs her down. Will Shannon be willing to embrace change and welcome love with it? Can each woman find the faith and strength to weather their era and invite love into their hearts"--P.  of cover.
