Anita Shreve writes of a love that exists between a married woman and a soul-mate she encounters too late in life. The story builds around the drama that escalates around the union strikes and organizations that began in the 19th century. The protagonist, a woman, is a strong and independent lady who can best be described as someone ahead of her time. Through a series of unfortunate events, the reader learns to sympathize with the protagonist and the love that cannot be.
