Bread and Roses, Too

Bread and Roses, Too

It's 1912, and Mamma is on strike against the big mill owner in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The crowds march and Mamma carries a sign that says, "WE WANT BREAD AND ROSES, TOO." Times are hard, and daughter, Rosa, is being sent away to Barre, Vermont. Life is incredibly cruel for Jake Beak, a young boy who sneaks on the same train with Rosa, and the two children find themselves in a whole new family and a very different world. What's going on back in Mamma's world? Are the police after Jake? 288 pages Ages 9-13
