Publisher Description

A gripping sequel to the bestselling novel What Girls Are Good For, following the real-life reporting of undercover journalist Nellie Bly!

Step into the electric streets of 1880s New York as trailblazing journalist Nellie Bly delves into the heart of the city's underbelly, where the cries of abandoned infants echo through the cobblestone alleys, as she discovers the fate of unwanted babies.

Fresh from her harrowing escape from the madhouse on Blackwell's Island, undercover reporter Nellie Bly receives a letter that launches her next crusading investigation—what becomes of unwanted children? As Bly fearlessly navigates the dangerous labyrinth of 1880s New York, her unyielding pursuit of justice sheds light on the plight of the city's most vulnerable. Discovering the wide range of reasons children are abandoned, even Bly's characteristic pluck fails her as she chases down the doctors who buy and sell babies!

With meticulous research and vivid prose, David Blixt transports readers to an era defined by social upheaval and journalistic tenacity. "Charity Girl" is a powerful testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the transformative impact of one woman's unwavering dedication to exposing the harsh realities of a bygone era.

Praise for What Girls Are Good For:

★★★★★ - "David Blixt pens a heroine for the ages in "What Girls Are Good For," which follows the extraordinary career of pioneer newspaperwoman Nellie Bly. A pint-sized dynamo who refuses to stay in the kitchen, Nellie fights tooth and nail to make a name for herself as a journalist, battling complacent men, corrupt institutions, and her own demons along the way. This real-life Lois Lane had me cheering aloud as I turned the pages - simply a delight!" - Kate Quinn, author of The Alice Network
