Many of Mrs. Miller’s works feature recurring themes, and this particular title uses a number of ideas that were subsequently recycled in the later, but rather similar, Dainty’s Cruel Rivals: a crumbling and allegedly haunted estate, a Cinderella theme, and (to the likely chagrin of modern-day readers) a stereotypical “black mammy” character in a prominent role. Neither Little Golden’s Daughter or Dainty’s Cruel Rivals can be counted among Mrs. Miller’s better works — newcomers are advised to sample The Bride of the Tomb first — but they still hold some interest for completists.
The book may be read online or downloaded in a variety of popular formats at Project Gutenberg.
