Maura O’Connell, young, lovely, innocent, and Irish immigrant left widowed in turn-of-the-century New York, was forced to battle for happiness against fearful odds. This is her story, of the men she gave herself to in her desperate earch, first for survival, then for fulfillment, of her courageous break for freedom from crushing sexual bondage and brutal working condition. This powerful novel is a vivid recreaction of a time when a woman could become easy prey to men’s desires and a slave of a factory system that ruthlessly exploited not only immigrant labor but especially female labor.
