The organization had ruled that the train tracks running through the Pullman Car Works entitled employees of the company to membership in the larger national union. As expected, the majority of the striking men had arrived for the meeting.

You can read book An Uncertain Dream by Miller, Judith in our library for absolutely free. The organization had ruled that the train tracks running through the Pullman Car Works entitled employees of the company to membership in the larger national union. Since most had little else with which to occupy their time, they’d trudge the mile and a half to Kensington and congregate at the union headquarters each day.

When Pullman Car Works employees walk out in protest of their wages and high rent, Olivia Mott is torn between her loyalty to the company and her love for Fred DeVault. Amidst the turmoil in Pullman, Fred is asked to act as a local delegate to the national convention of the American Railway Union, but when the delegates vote in favor of a nationwide boycott of the famous Pullman sleeping cars, Olivia wonders if Fred will ever be able to return to the company town. What will become of their growing affection for each other? Who will prevail in the company strike?
  • It's so easy
The Pullman strike was devastating to those struck because of the lack of support from other unions. People were starving, yet Pullman and his board decreased wages and kept prices for rent the same and charged more for food. This story has very much information about the Pullman strike, but it is a love story. This occurred during a depression that was occurring in 1894. This book, the third of a trilogy, begins with the day that the people from Pullman strike. I wanted to know what happened with the strike, so I looked up the information from two sources. I had become extremely involved in what I was reading. While I support right to work laws, I can definitely understand the need for unions. They were extremely needed during the Industrial Revolution, yet they did not come into effect for several years after it began, and then it took a while before they started working together.
Olivia came from England and was able to become an assistant chef at the hotel at Pullman. She fell in love with a young man named Fred. Her friend and former employer, Charlotte, who had been in an aristocratic lady in England falls in love with a reporter. Charlotte had gone back to England and lost her father and her home due to her father's gambling. She had a child out of wedlock in America, and her parents had taken him back to England with them after she had abandoned him with Olivia in the United States. She had gone to England, where she thought she might stay, but realized she had to return to the US in order to have a decent life. Fred's mother, Martha, goes to work at the hotel kitchen as a baker and she and Chef Renè, the French head chef, fall in love. That is the background for a story that is gripping, joyful, sad, and hopeful all at the same time!
If you want to read this book, I strongly suggest you get the first two of the trilogy before reading this one. You will probably become as involved in the story as did I.

In Pullman, Illinois everyone worked for Pullman Car Company the salaries were low and the rent on the houses went up. They had to buy everything from the company store which was outrageously over priced. Olivia was torn between love for Fred DeVault and loyalty to the company. Charlotte gets her baby back and she is in Chicago working and trying to raise a baby. In 1884 the people got together and decided to go on a Strike! This was to increase wages and lower rent the whole town got involved. After meetings and more meetings this brings the town together, some of the people found other jobs in Chicago and others went back to work so they would not have to move and start all over again. This brings the series to an end, it was a good series but no surprises, The author did describe the trains in detail, the town, the characters were well described and the series were entertaining.

It starts out Charlottes comes from England and chooses Pullman, Ilene to live and gets a job at Marshall Fields to work and help support the lady of the who takes in families who need help. Time goes by and decides to go back to England and rejoin with a very small son Morgan and together they return back to Pullman, IL. Mrs. Griddle who is in charge of her borders. Welcomes them with open arms.

Then there is Oliivia who comes to Pullman, Illinois for a job as a chef and meets Fred who they both fall in love. As time moves on the people of Pullman decide to argue for higher wages and that is how the union begins and destruction destroys so many people. This a very short version of what is to come. Becomes more interesting as the plot continues. Good read..

The first two books were better than this one in my opinion. Good storyline, good characters and just what you want in a Christian Love drama novel. This is the story of
how English Royalty (just a bit) works, and what happens when a person really cannot
use it to her advantage & has to be what they would consider a commoner. That is just
the one main character,Charlotte. The other is a assistant chef hired under a falsely written recommendation,Olivia. You follow each one thru the 3 books & how their lives
move & where they are. You also follow a strike in the Pullman Railroad Cars & how this
effects so many people. I know it was an important part of the story but I think the author could have shortened some of that. Thinking over it I think that is what dragged the 3books out.

I started reading this series with Book 1 and ended with Book 3, but wished there was another to show the time period in Chicago (1895 - 1910). The author (Judith Miller) took a historical time period in the 1890's of industrial development and created a series of books that could bring to life a by-gone era. I learned so much history associated with Pullman the town and the man behind it's creation.

I recommend this series to anyone interested in the history of post Civil War township developments. This series made the area come to life and caused me to do research for Pullman, Illinois. I think this would be a great Girl's Trip for my next "mom, sister, and daughter trip." Strong women of faith with human characteristics encourage our hearts.

I loved the 1st book and parts of the 2nd book, and had already purchased the 3rd book, which was a complete
disappointment. I too grew tired of hearing about the strike in Pullman, and wanted a lot more interaction
between Fred and Olivia, as well as Charlotte and Matthew. (which by the way, we didn't find out how that
relationship progressed and/or ended). I love historical christian romance novels, but you needed to continue
the series so we could find out how things ended/progressed with each of these couples. I have read some of
your other novels, and was impressed, but this one just wasn't enjoyable. I could hardly wait for it to end,
which I hate to admit, but that was the way I felt.

The first two I couldn't put down, then I started this one. It was focused too much on the depression and the strike within the Pullman Car Works, and for being that focused on an issue throughout the entire book, it didn't really give a good ending. I felt it ending was lack luster, like the author got tired of writing her own novel, so she just ended it.
