Steel Ashes

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I picked up this book because of its setting of Pittsburgh, where I grew up. It takes place in the early 1900s, a mystery about a fire that leaves two immigrants dead. Lots of connections to the steel mills in the book. The book started out very slow but I gradually got into the story. I loved the character of Helen, a very strong and opinionated woman for her time. I think I read the book more for the characters rather than the plot line which was just ok.
