By: Francis Marion Crawford (1854-1909)
Katharine Lauderdale would be a New York society belle, if it were not for her miserly father. Her older sister has escaped the unhappy parental home by marrying and Katherine plans to do the same, but her father has already refused to sanction her nuptials with her cousin and childhood sweetheart, Jack Ralston. Desperate measures are needed and what role will rich Uncle Robert play in the future of the young people?
