The local Native Americans and Mexicans know there's something cursed about the mine: when the Wind blows, you can hear the cries of the water babies.
I capitalize Wind advisedly, for when the Wind starts blowing, weirdness ensues. Anyway, the water babies are spirits of stillborn babies. The Native Americans interred their stillborns in a cave adjacent to the mine.
Here, their spirits reside until it's time for them to be reborn.
They don't like the Wind, so they cry. Meanwhile, a widower mining engineer named Mr.
Lyons comes to town to try and get the mine restarted. He dies, leaving behind his nine year-old daughter, Christie. In his will, he gives guardianship to the Amber family: ish crone Edna, and ish crackpot, Diane.
Christie soon finds that Diane treats her like a toddler--insisting on giving her baths, and making her sleep in a crib. Also, whenever Christie cries, Diane starts beating the shit out of her.

She was strong, but she was beginning to tire. As she ran, her long blond hair flared behind her like a beautiful silk scarf. She was pretty, even though there were dark, plum-colored circles under her eyes.
She knew the men were coming to kill her. She could hear them hurrying through the woods behind her.
She glanced over her right shoulder, painfully twisting her neck. She flashed a mental picture of her little brother, Matthew. Where was he? The two of them had separated just outside the School, both running and screaming. She was afraid Matthew was already dead. Uncle Thomas probably got him.
Thomas had betrayed them and that hurt so much she couldn't stand to
