Another dime novel by prolific author Mrs. Alex. McVeigh Miller has been added to Project Gutenberg by the Distributed Proofreaders project, using scans from our Digital Library. The latest book is The Man She Hated; or, Won by Strategy, a melodrama first serialized in the New York Fireside Companion story paper under the title A Lovely Orphan; or, The Love Story of a Beautiful Sewing Girl.
The novel tells the tale of Fairfax Fielding, a young sewing girl whose mother desires that she should marry a rich man and restore the family’s fortunes. This pressure, assisted by the malicious actions of a jealous coworker, leads Fair into an unhappy marriage, allowing Mrs. Miller’s usual style of plot twists and catastrophes to ensue.
As always, the full text of the book can be read online or downloaded in popular eBook formats via Project Gutenberg.
