Yesterday, Ms. Davis, my kindergarten teacher, came to see me. When I was a child, she was the voice of aspiration and personal responsibility. I was only 5 or 6, but I knew and still know that this is what she taught and what she expected of her students. I have two girls slightly younger than I was then, and I hope they have many Ms. Davises. I'm so fortunate to have had mine.  #wileycash  #thelastballad

~The Last Ballad ~
In 1929, a pregnant single mother with five children played a pivotal part in the strikes of southern textile mill workers. After losing four of her nine children and being abandoned by her husband, Ella May Wiggins worked 12 hours a day, 6 days a week for a $9 weekly paycheck. They were protesting not just low wages but also filthy, unsafe working conditions and extreme production requirements. Ella was white, but lived in an African American community, comprised of small shacks and relied on a neighbor to look after her children. Her friendships with her neighbors, many of whom were fellow mill workers, aided her in recruiting them for an integrated protest.  Ella serenaded strikers with her protest ballads such as: "A Mill Mother's Lament":
We leave our homes in the morning
We kiss our children goodbye
While we slave for the bosses
Our children scream and cry... But understand all, workers
Our union they do fear
Let's stand together, workers
And have a union here

This novel tells Ella May`s story through the eyes of many different characters. I have to say, I did not always like the players in this story, but it’s to be expected that the characters are natural,  flawed, and in some cases a bit seedy too. There are the greedy mill owners, the corrupt law men, and the zealous union leaders, among others. Ella May is gritty, tough, and also brave to lay everything on the line for the union's cause and justice.Tension builds as events progress towards the climax of the Loray Mill strike in Gastonia, NC. The author brings to light a woman and her contributions to workers rights that have been a quiet if not forgotten part of American history. 
Thanks to Bookperk Page Turners & @williammorrowbooks for an ARC to review.

@sierranevada it's the most wonderful time of the year.  #beer  #wileycash  #thelastballad
If you're looking for an amazingly comfortable pair of boots I can vouch for the Earls from @tecovas. I left Spokane at 9 am on Friday and missed my connection in Salt Lake City and didn't arrive home in North Carolina until 11 am on Saturday. I spent a little more than 24 hours in these boots, walking all over Salt Lake City, visiting @kingsenglishbookshop, seeing the Mormon Temple, and catching a @utahjazz game before taking a redeye home. These boots kept me comfortable and happy during my nonstop travel and walking, and when I arrived home and took them off after 24 hours I looked forward to putting them on again.  #wileycash  #thelastballad  #tecovas  #boots

My phone storage told it was time to catch up on the absurd amount of podcasts I had downloaded so my reading time was overtaken for a couple weeks, but I am so happy to be spending this time in the park with this book taking me to to 1929 North Carolina.

The Last Ballad by @wileycashauthor (released October 3rd)
.
.
"Set in the Appalachian foothills of North Carolina in 1929 and inspired by actual events, that chronicles an ordinary woman’s struggle for dignity and her rights in a textile mill, a moving tale of courage in the face of oppression and injustice."
.
.
This was a beautifully written book that captures the violence and hardships that one woman went through in her fight to bring justice. This is a work of historical fiction focusing on the labor strike in a mill town of North Carolina in the 1920s. .
Ella May Wiggins played a huge role in the fight for better pay and more safety in mills. The characters come to life and the reader is thrust into their world. This was definitely an immersive read.
.
.
I give this one 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5!
.
.
My full review will be up on my blog later tonight!
