John Hodder is the new rector at St. John's, a church in a fashionable section of town that isn't so far away from the misery of poverty-stricken Dalton Street. It doesn't take Hodder long to discover the true nature of his supposedly pious congregation. Primary among them is Eldon Parr, a bank president whose daughter, Alison, leaves to perform settlement work. Eldon's son, Preston, has deserted the family because of his father's treatment of the poor girl he loved, and is now living a life of degradation. Hodder is disgusted by the cruelty of Parr and others who attend St. John's, and he exposes them all from the pulpit. He refuses to resign after his tirade and goes about correcting all the wrongs perpetrated by his parishioners. This wins Alison's heart. One of Parr's disgruntled former workers shoots him and then himself. Parr survives just long enough to make amends for all he has done, and to unite his family once again

The dwelling-place of light by Winston Churchill( Book )

34 editions published between 1917 and 2018 in English and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel depicts labor unrest in a Massachusetts mill town as the I.W.W. calls a strike. It is noteworthy for the realism employed in depicting contemporary labor conditions and the details of the strike. Strikingly realistic, the novel does not shy from harsh depictions of the poor working conditions in the mill, nor of the violent tenor of the workers' anger. And Churchill's shrewd eye observes domestic matters as well, with his astute dramatizations of romance and married life

Dr. Jonathan : A Play by Winston Churchill( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thought-provoking play from American author Winston Churchill (not to be confused with the British prime minister of the same name) explores the changes in the social fabric of the United States that began to take place in the early decades of the twentieth century.
