THE HOST ROCK by Mary Frances Doner


Email this review


Young widow Phoebe Rawlins comes to Canada's uranium prospecting territory near Lake Superior seeking to escape the memories of an unfortunate and unhappy marriage. She meets a number of people, gets a job, and falls in love with Bruce Winslow, a brilliant young scientist, but distrusting his affiliation with a Toronto girl, dallies with suave Paul LeBlanc. Various incidents serve to clear up Bruce's relationship with the other girl, expose LeBlanc's illegal activities in the mines, and a dreadful night spent in the bush leads her back to a faith in God and man- and to the arms of Bruce.... It may be all about mines, but it's still just a surface story- for rent.
