Blue Collar Blues

By Rosalyn McMillan (Electronic Book, 1999)
Washington Post Book World calls her work "extraordinary" and "energetic"; "Entertainment Weekly" termed it "enthralling"; "USA Today" praised her honest, gritty depiction of everyday living and "passion between and beyond the sheets." Now, with the bold true-to-life drama, humor, and piercing insight that made her books "Knowing" and "One Better" national bestsellers, Rosalyn McMillan delivers her sexiest, most powerful novel yet -- set in the vibrant heart of American automobile industry where four very different people -- and passions -- are about to collide...

One of Detroit's biggest auto manufacturers, Champion Motors is a world divided between white collar and blue collar -- and ruled by the law of overtime. Everyone hungers to be a "white collar" worker with more money...someone who can make -- and "take" -- the most out of life...

For her there is no compromise when it comes to her job -- or her love for her white husband, Cy a company executive. But her struggle to gain complete professional parity will reveal the bitterest of betrayals, and force her to risk the one thing she values above all else...

-- "Ron Davis." The plant's fiery union leader, he protects his people and stays cool even at ground zero of red-hot labor unrest. Yet his refusal to confront his failings will throw his private life into a firestorm, where the only way
