Abstract:

Follows the fates of five interrelated families-- American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh-- as they move through the dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage. Thirteen-year-old Billy Williams enters a man's world in the Welsh mining pits. Gus Dewar finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson's White House. Brothers Grigori and Lev Peshkov embark on radically different paths when their plan to immigrate to America falls afoul. Billy's sister Ethel, a housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts, takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Fitzherbert falls in love with Walter von Ulrich, a spy at the German embassy in London.
