Discuss The Last Ballad by Wiley Cash. The New York Times bestselling author of A Land More Kind Than Home and This Dark Road to Mercy returns with his new novel, set in the Appalachian foothills of North Carolina in 1929 and inspired by actual events. Cash tells the story of an ordinary woman’s struggle for dignity and her rights in a textile mill.  He brings to life the heartbreak and bravery of the now forgotten struggle of the labor movement in early 20th century America. The Last Ballad is a moving tale of courage in the face of oppression and injustice.
