Jane Cable

by George Barr McCutcheon

A foundling from an orphan asylum is instrumental in saving the crumbling marriage of an obscure railroad man and his wife. The same foundling, twenty years later, is the source of tragedy for her adoptive parents, her fiance, and herself. A romance of 1890s Chicago, Jane Cable has a contrived plot and stereotyped characters, but the plot moves and the characters play their roles in a manner reminiscent of Jane Austin or Charlotte Bronte creations. --Book Review Digest, 1906
