From the Best-Selling Pen of America's First Undercover Journalist, a Novel Lost for 125 Years!
Pioneering undercover journalist Nellie Bly is rightly famous for exposing society's ills. From brutal insane asylums to corrupt politicians, she exposed all manner of frauds and charlatans. What no one has known was that she was also a novelist. This is because, of the 12 novels Bly wrote between 1889 and 1895, 11 have been lost - until now! Discovered by author David Blixt (What Girls Are Good For), Nellie Bly's lost works of fiction are now available for the first time, complete with the original artwork! These are The Lost Novels of Nellie Bly!
The Snares Of Riches And The Spell Of Love!
Money, or love? Dimple and Della disagree. The twins have differing views of love. Dimple plans to wed for wealth, freeing her family from the weight of poverty. Della, however, plans to only marry for love. Despite their love for each other, each twin finds the other foolish in regards to the purpose of matrimony.
When Dimple marries the old millionaire Mr. Darlington, she thinks she has won the prize. But soon she finds life in a mansion is filled with crippling loneliness. On a visit to her sister, she finds herself rescued from certain death by a handsome stranger, and realizes at once that Della has been right all along. Love is all that matters in the world.
But even if she were not already tied to the grumbling and jealous Darlington, there is another obstacle to Dimple's happiness. The man she loves is already betrothed—to Dimple's sister Della!
A passionate story of desire and denial, this final novel of Nellie Bly's pen is perhaps her most prescient, mirroring events of her life to come. Not based on her reporting but on her own questions of love and the duality of her own nature, Bly plays out the questions that vex her in . . .Twins & Rivals!
