This book blew my mind, not because the story was great, or because it was so well written. It was because it was originally published in 1879, and the economic and political atmosphere that Amanda Douglas explores throughout the book is basically a parallel to what we are facing today. Rich getting richer while the poor get poorer, rampant speculation ruining economies, etc. etc. It was fascinating. Well worth a read!
