In the late 1880s to the early 1900s, Mrs. E.D.E.N. Southworth was a popular Victorian romance serial novelist. In a smart marketing move, few of her novels were complete within themselves. Southworths stories usually had an open ending, forcing readers to buy the sequel novel to find out how the story ended.
The publisher insisted that each of Southworth's novels had a unique, specially designed cover that easily distinguished each book from the others.
Please keep in mind as you review the pictures and listing information that the book is more than 100 years old and will have wear. If you have any questions, please contact me.
