Review: Seen through the eyes of Rosa's Italian immigrant family and native-born Jake Beale, Katherine Paterson uses her considerable talent to relate the story of the Bread and Roses strike of 1912 in the textile mills of Lawrence, Massachusetts. As tensions in the city escalate, Rosa and Jake Beale find themselves shipped out of harm's way to sympathetic people in Vermont. Readers will be captivated by this riveting story.
