I received an eARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Incredible. In so many shapes and forms. The Radium Girls is a very true story of the resilience, tenacity, and perseverance of the women (and their families) who faced insurmountable odds, defeats, and ill-treatment for the sake of profits.
