Set in the historic Great Valley of Virginia during the years 1900 -- 1932, this absorbing novel centers on the love and marriage of Ada Fincastle, daughter of a hardy Scotch-Irish family. The Fincastles are descended from pioneer settlers who survived Indian wars and the rigors of frontier life. The hardships that Ada Fincastle faces during the early days of the Depression are no less severe, but she draws on the same vein of iron, the courage of generations, to endure and win. Vein of Iron has been widely praised as the finest work of Ellen Glasgow's distinguished career.
