    Winston Churchill is a master in painting color with words His descriptions of the mill town, the mill workers, the lightness, the darkness, are incredible It is well worth reading this book to see how he paints a beautiful picture with just words.With that said, this story is about labor, labor strikes, the rich, the poor It takes place in two small towns of Hampton Ma, and Silliston, MA In all reality, this is a story of the Bread and Roses strike of 1912 that took place in Lawrence, MA Winston Churchill is a master in painting color with words His descriptions of the mill town, the mill workers, the lightness, the darkness, are incredible It is well worth reading this book to see how he paints a beautiful picture with just words.With that said, this story is about labor, labor strikes, the rich, the poor It takes place in two small towns of Hampton Ma, and Silliston, MA In all reality, this is a story of the Bread and Roses strike of 1912 that took place in Lawrence, MA This book is a fictional story of historical facts with an interesting interplay between the using of workers and the using of women for gain and pleasure It is really very well done I am very pleased to have found the works of Winston Churchill and highly recommend his works to anyone who enjoys a good story with deep, symbolic meanings

    Well, first of all, I should point out the common confusion regarding the author of this book Originally, even GoodReads had the actual author listed incorrectly The author is Winston Churchill, the American writer who was born in St Louis and who lived in Cornish, NH surrounded by a bunch of my in law relatives, no doubt I wonder if he ever got a taste of Aunt Grace s awesome Blueberry Goop for most of his life He was a cousin of the former British Prime Minister, Sir Winston S Churc Well, first of all, I should point out the common confusion regarding the author of this book Originally, even GoodReads had the actual author listed incorrectly The author is Winston Churchill, the American writer who was born in St Louis and who lived in Cornish, NH surrounded by a bunch of my in law relatives, no doubt I wonder if he ever got a taste of Aunt Grace s awesome Blueberry Goop for most of his life He was a cousin of the former British Prime Minister, Sir Winston S Churchill They agreed to distinguish themselves from each other by having Sir Winston use his middle initial Bless the GoodReads librarians for clearing this up for us all Second of all, the nitwits atclaim this book is only 226 pages It s actuallylike 400 pp I don t know whycan t hire someone competent to make up a decent page count algorithm, but they can t They re generally way off with their real page numbers , often comically way off One would think that even a not very bright 12 year old could come up with a better page count algorithm than the so called engineers atBut, naturally, they don t care about quality, just marketing and moving product Ok, now on to the book It s a good one Not an all time classic, but well worth one s time The book is generally considered to be a story of labor unrest The mill workers in a small industrial city in Massachusetts are about to have their pay cut They begin to talk strike and operatives of the IWW Industrial Workers of the World or Wobblies move into town and begin to organize the strike It gets contentious and ugly over time The basic story line of the strike follows the historical outline of the so called Bread and Roses strike in the mills of Lawrence, MA in 1912 It makes sense that Churchill would use history to provide background for his story His primary fame is as a writer of historical novels I also see it as a coming of age chronicle about an intelligent young woman who was born into a good family, but, because of her father s fecklessness, her immediate family including her mother, father and somewhat wild younger sister were living at the level of poverty common to the mill workers a century ago Her father, in fact, had fallen to the ordinary mill worker level, being the gate keeper at one of the mills The young woman is a hard working, competent stenographer, and is motivated to become independent She has neither the background nor the role model to support a woman s independent living For the most part, it wasn t done a century ago So she has to figure out things for herself, making mistakes along the way It s really a fairly compelling book and very well written The book is full of modern ideas, modern for a century ago, but many still ones with which we wrestle today You will also recognize that the disdain the mill bosses have for the mill workers continues to be echoed in the sneers of the likes of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in their political posturing today Nothing much changes it seems It s the fourth or fifth Winston Churchill book I ve read, and I wonder why he isn t still read today I have yet to find a book of his that isn t a GoodRead
