The Black Canarybrsings from its pages the cacophony of hate and fear through the clash of race,brreligion, and class, intertwined with the welcome harmony of love. That many ofbrthese stunning events are historical makes the reading a deeply richbrexperience.” Marilyn Arnold, a novelist, honored analyst of the Book of Mormon,brand past executive of BYU, writes, “Marilyn Brown has done it again! In ThebrBlack Canary, she has skillfully blended history and fiction in an impressivelybrauthentic setting. She takes us to the mining town of Helper, Utah, and spins abrgripping tale of personal and community struggle, of racism, labor strikes,brdeath, and young romance. At the same time, we become attached to the lovablebrcanaries who give their lives to save the miners. Marilyn is gifted withbrlanguage, with understanding, insight, and purpose.”
