Nancy 'Nance' Olden, a young and very pretty woman, is an accomplished liar and thief. Raised in a horrific orphanage, called the Cruelty by its occupants, Nance and her criminal boyfriend, Tom Dorgan, are pulling a con when the book begins. The results of their act propel Nance into a series of events that she could never have imagined. This was Miriam Michelson's first novel and it was considered a 'blockbuster' in its day. Ranked fourth on the list of bestsellers of 1904 by "Publishers Weekly," Michelson's book was a source of controversy due to the dubious ethics and morals of its heroine.
A good story, though a little 'sweet' for my taste, well narrated throughout.
Good read. Good reader
This story is a real find. Suspense, that keeps you on the edge of your seat, a lead character that you are sorry to leave at the end of the book and excellent writing throughout. Many modern bestsellers fall short compared to this. Add the excellent and lively reading, this was a treat!
Has been a while since I listened, but, I remember good characters, plenty of humor, a good mystery... thoroughly enjoyable
