Summary: Like many smallish and inelegant towns that dot the coastlines and crossroads of this country, Sheanâ€™s postwar, post-industrial economy is in desperate disrepair, and the lengths that some civic leaders will go to in order to do â€œwhatâ€™s bestâ€ for a town like Shean sometimes requires a leap of faith that has unintended consequences.
When a global corporation plans a daring scheme to exploit the remaining coal from an improbable source â€“ and thus to secure Sheanâ€™s economic future â€“ politicians try to marginalize the few voices of dissent.
