(/ˈældʒər/; January 13, 1832 – July 18, 1899) was an American writer of young adult novels about impoverished boys and their rise from humble backgrounds to lives of middle-class security and comfort through hard work, determination, courage, and honesty. His writings were characterized by the "rags-to-riches" narrative, which had a formative effect on the United States during the Gilded Age. (January 13, 1832 – July 18, 1899) was an American writer. He wrote magazine stories and poems, a few novels for adults, and 100 plus boys' books. His boys' books were hugely popular. Alger was born in Massachusetts, and attended Harvard College. He became a Unitarian minister, but his career as a clergyman was brief. It ended when his congregation charged him with child molestation. Criminal charges were not placed against him, but his career in the church was finished.

Unconscious of the curiosity which her appearance had excited, the girl entered the open entry and paused. A whole trunkful of books! Land sakes! You must be crazy. Nobody but a minister would want so many books as that

Unconscious of the curiosity which her appearance had excited, the girl entered the open entry and paused. A middle aged woman, evidently the landlady of the inn, speedily made her appearance. Good afternoon, miss," she said. Nobody but a minister would want so many books as that. If he didn't spend so much money that way, his wife could dress a little more decent.

Oh, I did so like this one. Featuring a young woman (early 20's) who is wealthy but unhappy with her existence, wishing for "more" ... she becomes at the suggestion and recommendation of her seamstress a school teacher in rural New Hampshire. I liked how she interacted with the mischief maker of the school.

And she chose a wonderful family (widow of a war veteran) to stay (board) with too. Themes that would play as well today and one hundred years ago are all prevalent.

A man from her past shows up, and there's a wealthy stuck up so-and-so to boot, along with a woman and her two daughters. Fortune hunters and prey... interesting and the "act in haste/repent at leisure" bit will surely please folks.

Anyway, I enjoyed this Horatio Alger story, featuring adults -- and a woman is the heroine. She's practical and smart and very generous too. I liked her and you will as well.

Aside: I've been sticking with the free H.A. books but chose to buy this one because it features a woman. It was worth the price (less than $2 as I recall) and is now a part of the permanent Kindle bookshelf. I tend to delete, so Keeper Status is my highest regard. I enjoyed A Fancy of Hers and believe you will too. Ditto children.
