Job's Niece

Job's Niece opens in the night with Doris Dunbar sorting through "a regular blizzard of bills" following the untimely death of her father, trying to bring some order to things before seeing the lawyer the next day. When her sister enters the room, her "trifling pink kimono" giving some clue to her character, Doris has her hands full trying to explain that things were not as they seemed—and were not likely to get better anytime soon.

 
This book was originally a serial, copyrighted by Golden Rule Company in 1926 & 1927. This means that it was most likely a feature in Christian Endeavor World. When the serial ran its course, J.B. Lippincott published it in book form.

Pick up a vintage copy to find out how Doris manages her siblings, her stepmother, and all that lies ahead as the new day dawns.
