paperback    ISBN 13: 9780749936334 | ISBN 10: 0749936339

Post-Civil War New York City is the battleground of the American dream: an era of vast fortunes and crushing poverty. Though life is hard, the promise of change is in the air. Women are agitating for the vote and other civil rights. Immigrants are pouring into the city, bringing with them a new energy. Among them is Freydeh, a spirited young Jewish woman from Russia. Living in a tiny tenement flat with eight others, Freydeh juggles numerous jobs to earn passage to America for her beloved family.

"This is a brilliantly written tale, interwoven with a vivid account of women's struggle for the right to vote."
