He gained notoriety when his friendship with ‘William Taylor Adams’, a boys’ author, changed Horatio’s interest to writing for the juvenile market. Alger devoted his writing to his ‘formula, rags-to-riches’ books for boys.‘Helen Ford’ (aka A Child of Fortune) was one of the author’s few adult novels, and one of only two stories which had a female heroine (the other being Tattered Tom- the Story of a Street Arab).

Although Alger’s adult novels were not as well received as his ‘boys’ books’, Helen Ford is a charming tale of a 14 year old girl who supports her widowed father (an absent-minded inventor) by singing in a variety show. Through a series of misadventures, lies, and deliberate deceit on the part of a cousin, Helen’s father has been kept estranged from his own wealthy father.

Eventually, they are reunited and welcomed back into the family by Helen’s grandfather.Further information on this prolific author will be found in the introduction provided by AlwaysWrite Ent.
