The book starts by giving the reader a brief idea of what life was like in the old country. Life on the Lower East Side---the hard work, trying to become an American, a generation gap, a workers' strike at a shirtwaist factory, making friends, understanding and appreciating the adults in a young
Show Morewoman's life---all are part of the rest of the book. The afterword briefly describes the actual strike described in the story.
