really liked it

Gripping historical fiction with well-realized and memorable characters. The historical detail is fascinating; the parallels to issues in contemporary American society to do with rich and poor, race, unionization and workers' rights are subtly drawn and very timely. I was surprised at how enthralled I was by this one.
