Very Good / No Jacket. Item #17142

A social commentary on the evils of the wealthy set in New England via a story of romance. Written to teach people a little about personal finance and living within your means ...humorous and entertaining.

"The whole town is going broke trying to keep up with Lizzie - the right style, the right education, and even the right way to speak. When circumstances change Lizzie, the town tries to change with her."

"This was a refreshingly good book that everyone in modern times should read. It has a lot to say about our materialistic society where hard work is only for the lower class."

The book was to be made into a movie in 1921.
