A Nation's Crime


to Cart

New York & Washington: Neale Publishing Company, 1910. 378 p. 1st ed. Krick 289. [1878]


"The crime of the title is the failure of the United States to institute a nationally uniform divorce law. The plot is incredibly complex and no less boring. At the long overdue curtain, a beautiful young lady takes poison and dies at the feet of the European count to whom she is betrothed - this rather than disgracing him by marrying him, now that her parent's marriage has been invalidated through some technicality. A somewhat more rational brother is only out a few million dollars. Mrs. Lowenberg, having killed off the girl, cries out for vengeance in the form of adequate divorce laws" - Krick.
