The Man Who Wins

by Robert Herrick

Mr. Herrick has selected several principal characters for his remarkable study--the Rev. Roper Elwell, a noted New England divine of a bygone generation; Mark Elwell, his son, who made a fortune in the wool business; John Elwell, grandson to old Roper Elwell, who spent two riotous years at Cambridge, and then was married suddenly; John's daughter Leonora, and Jarvis Thornton, who had been granted a degree in medicine, but who intended to devote his life to scientific studies instead of practicing his profession, being enabled to do so owing to a small fortune which had been acquired by his father. As a story it is far above the ordinary offering; as a study of the disintegration of a fine old family it is admirable; as an argument as to the laws of heredity--well, men of science will debate that question for a long time to come.

Author of the Day

Joe Rothstein
Joe Rothstein has been at the center of U.S. politics through over two hundred campaigns over the past thirty years. This experience inspired him to write a very believable political thriller about a Latina president who sets out to fight corruption, but meets great resistance in the form of an international conspiracy to impeach her. As our Author of the Day, Rothstein gives us a look behind the scenes of political campaigns, talks about the world's financial stability and a lot more.
