"And he never tried—again?"

"No. He went to Alaska then. Hasn't ever been back since. He's done well, too, they say, and I always thought he'd send back something; but he never has. There was some trouble, I believe, between him and Father Duff at the time he went to Alaska, so that explains it, probably. Anyway, he's never done anything for them. Well, when he gave out, Maggie just gave up college then, and settled down to take care of her father, though I guess she's always studied some at home; and I know that for years she didn't give up hope but that she could go some time. But I guess she has now. Poor Maggie!"

"How old is she?"

Why, let me see—forty-three, forty-four—yes, she's forty-five. She had her forty-third birthday here—I remember I gave her a handkerchief for a birthday present—when she was helping me take care of Mellicent throu. . . Read More

I found an old copy of this book while cleaning out my parents' home. What a delightful weekend read it was. Porter takes a clever look at money and how and why people spend or don't spend it. Even though written in 1918, I found it applicable for today.

My family and I enjoyed this book over this years very much

Very difficult to read such an old book with an old writing style. But its a generational family favorite that needed reading.

An enjoyable enough book by the author of Pollyanna. What I enjoyed most about it was reading my 1918 hardback first edition inscribed to my great grandmother by her sister, and knowing she and all the women in the family since then had handled and read this very volume.

A thoughtful and entertaining study of what happens to people when they get an unexpected windfall. It reminded me of that 1950s program "The Millionaire" and of what has happened to lottery winners. I would like to think that I would be wise after the first week or so.

Written 100 years ago, so Porter's writing style is of that era, which is fine by me! The plot is timeless, thought-provoking and entertaining. So glad I picked this book as my first Eleanor Porter read; will be reading more of her works.

Sometimes, like when you’re on a really long plane flight, as I was recently, all you want is a well-told story. And Porter, most famous as the author of Pollyanna, knows how to tell one. Stanley Fulton is a fabulously successful businessman (it’s never clear exactly how he made his millions) whose

OH, how I thoroughly enjoyed this book with its cast of characters. This book was written 100 years ago but is as relevant today as then. I'm going read every book this author has!

Oh Money! Money! has a rather dreadful title, but is really a rather pleasant book. Stanley Fulton, an eccentric millionaire, is curious to see if his distant cousins, the middle-class Blaisdells, are worthy inheriting his money. He decides to test them by giving them each $100,000, to see how a sud
