Darkness Visible imaginatively recreates a defining moment in American labor history: the battle between strikers and company-hired Pinkerton guards in Homestead, Pennsylvania, on July 6, 1892. Disowned by his minister father, university student Emlyn Phillips forsakes the bleak coalfields of South Wales to make a fresh start.

Aided by his brother-in-law Gwyn Jones, he finds a job in the Homestead Works of Carnegie Steel. As Emlyn struggles to find a niche in the New World, he must wrestle with the demons that drove him from the Old.
