"A Novel of American Family Life," by this noted journalist, labor activist, and social critic. The New York Times: "It is concerned solely and entirely with the growing up of a small family of children and the trials, perplexities and mooted questions which the parents of those children faced every day of their lives in their effort to do the right thing by their offspring." Deeply involved in radical politics and feminism, Ms. Vorse also wrote romantic fiction for women's magazines of the day; as a journalist she reported on numerous strikes and other labor actions, including the Lawrence Textile Strike in 1912, the steel industry strike of 1919, and the famous Gastonia (N.C.) textile workers strike in 1929; the latter inspired her novel "Strike!"
