Publisher's Summary

The Garment Maker's Daughter is a multigenerational saga of immigrant dreams and sweatshop realities, labor strikes and women's rights. It is the story of Lena Rothman, a shirtwaist maker and active suffragette whose plans get derailed when she falls in love with her best friend's boyfriend - Jake Brenner, a passionate labor organizer determined to lead the shirtwaist makers on a high-stakes strike - and Daniel Cowan, a brilliant and ambitious night-school student hobbled by a shameful past.  

Fate draws them together. Emotions bind them to each other. But secrets will tear them apart. 

When a devastating blaze engulfs the shirtwaist factory, Lena must fight for her life. And in the chaos of the fire's aftermath, mistakes will be made with consequences and secrets that continue into the next generation. 

Spanning the first half of the 20th century, this is a story about unforgettable characters and the threads of friendship, love, betrayal, and redemption that form the fabric of their lives.
