Very good story with subtle plot twists. Alger at his best.
Ok for free book. Horatio Alger always has the Hero win with the luck of goodness. This is unrealistic but loverable.
Reading this now for the second time. A typically fun, very readable Alger with some amusing characters like the martyred Aunt Rachel and her nephew Jack, who can't resist baiting her. Lots of drama too, with a vicious nurse and a kid who gets kidnapped. Alger's books are hard to put down, and the banter between characters is always engaging.
