This book is about a family who is affected by the coal mining industry. The father wants to form a union and puts his family in risk. To protect themselves from flying bullets the family had to take cover under the bed. While taking cover the mom writes a song. This song in the end brings the union together.

Overall I enjoyed reading this book. I would recommend this book for older grades. The book did a good job incorporating the song into the story line. Throughout the whole book I asked myself how I would feel if I was the children or mom. I however thought the story came to an end abruptly.
