Mighty Like a Rose Publisher's Summary

Mary Ryder is a housewife, her once fiery nature ground down by a life of cleaning and cooking for her drunken husband, Nigel. A chance meeting with idealistic mineworker Lewis Evans makes her realize what love can be.

Mary made a commitment to Nigel: for better, for worse. When the National Union of Mineworkers calls a strike, Mary doesn't realize it will change her and the town forever.

A tale of love, friendship, and solidarity set against the backdrop of the 1984-85 miners' strike, Mighty Like a Rose follows Mary on her journey from neat detached house to the front line of the UK's longest-running industrial dispute.
