LifeMoreIn the winter of 1912, the Italian textile workers in Lawrence Massachusetts began a strike. It became known as the Bread and Roses Strike and involved all of the workers, who came from many nations and spoke over twenty different languages. Life changed for almost everyone, and every family, in the city.This is a story of how the Flanagans, on one side of the city, and the Petrellas, on the other, coped with the changes forced upon them, and how Paddy Flanagan and Maria Petrella were thrown together by the strike and then torn apart. It tells how they fought time distance and cultural barriers in an effort to regain each others arms.
