Up there, m above sea level, lies one of New Zeal­and’s biggest high qual­ity coal mines. Between and , about 12 mil­lion tonnes of coal were mined and brought down to the rail­way. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid.

At the turn of the century Denniston is still isolated, but all that is about to change. New challenges will confront both Rose and this close-knit society. Staying or leaving will become an option.
