The Soul Of The Mine

by Tom O'Reilly

The Golden Hare Press are proud to present a new book by Tom O’Reilly entitled The Soul of the Mine. This book comprises a short story based on a local legend of St Germans about a mysterious hermit who lived in the old slate mine on the Port Eliot Estate. When a young traveller enters the hermit's world, he uncovers a story like no other, but ultimately it is the secret he brings that will change the hermit’s life forever...

Through the gateway into the woods, the traveller went. Past the mighty oaks, to where, in past years, men slaved to bring slate from the earth. The woods were dark, damp and cold, and rain was beginning to fall, and he could hear the pounding raindrops on the leaves of the trees, he pulled his cloak tighter around his neck, to keep out the wet. He felt tired, and his thoughts drifted back to his quiet, warm, comfortable home where his dear wife would be. He stumbled on with a small candle-lit lantern acting as his only torch. The rain had softened the earth, causing the ground to become soft, earth became mud and the pathway became treacherous.

‘Waste of time,’ he said under his breath. ‘No one would live in such a place!’'


The Soul of the Mine also features some beautiful examples of Tom’s poetry, as well as his fine pen and ink illustrations.

The book is 18 pages long and is limited to just 100 signed and numbered copies, which are hand bound in cloth. There are also 10 full leather bindings.
