About the Book

Mike Sokolowski and his godson Stefan have escaped Europe only to become “Enemy Aliens” in Canada. But where Stefan finds social justice in the strike, Mike sees a threat to his slave-wage job – his only hope of saving his family from revolution in Ukraine. When Stefan falls in love with Rebecca, a pro-strike Jewish suffragette, making a deportation target of them all, Mike turns against the strikers and their growing hope of changing the world.

Old World hatreds collide with New World ambitions in Strike! – an epic story of courage, passion, and hope on a collision course with power.
