If you are looking for good historical fiction, this is an excellent pick, a well-written, interesting story which adds understanding to two topics of current relevance: historic ethnic immigrant communities and the early roots of organized labor. It is based on thorough research and weaves many actual historical incidents into the lives of a fictional immigrant family.
This book covers similar territory as Paterson's Lyddie--life as a mill or factory worker, especially for an underage child--but in a later time period, the turn of the twentieth century, when workers are trying to unionize and ask for better conditions and better wages. The author paints a sympathetic picture of hard-working families who barely can afford food even though they work long hours in dangerous and unhealthy factories. The owners at first might seem merely disconnected from the reality of their employees' lives, but the tactics they use against strikers become more and more villainous and self-serving. The main characters are immigrants who cluster with fellow countrymen in segregated neighborhoods and even churches (there is an Italian Catholic church and an Irish Catholic church), but begin to support each other across ethnic lines against the wealthy factory owners' tactics. It is unfortunate that both this book and Lyddie can't be recommended to be read together since they contain such complementary information--Lyddie has more information about life inside the mill, Bread and Roses takes place in homes, the school, the streets--but the plot of Lyddie included some situations which might have been historically truthful but make Lyddie a questionable pick for some young readers (sexual harassment including attempted rape--although not explicit, still disturbing--and a pregnant friend who has been having an affair with a married man).
Bread and Roses follows two children, an Italian girl whose father was killed in a factory accident but whose family has managed to keep her in school where she is an excellent student, and an illiterate, underage boy who works in the mill and routinely has his wages taken from him by a drunk father. They meet in a garbage heap where she is looking for shoes she hid and he is trying to hide from his father, and their lives keep crossing. Paterson skillfully weaves real events into their stories without ever becoming pedantic about those facts. What a lovely way to learn!
