Time Period: 1889In Minneapolis in 1889, ten-year-old Rachel Borland finds her family torn apart by the new labor movement. Two of her uncles quarrel over the necessity of a streetcar workers' union-and before long, it becomes even more personal as Rachel is unwittingly caught up in a labor riot.Written especially for eight- to twelve-year-old girls, Rachel and the Riot tells the compelling story of a young girl hoping to bring peace to her divided family-while at the same time teaching important lessons of American history and the Christian faith.
