I love rags to riches stories, especially if they are true. The Silver Baron's wife is definitely one that appeals to me. Lizzie is a young woman forced to make a living in a rough male mining environment. Scandals, a failing marriage to a terrible opium addicted husband, and her desire to work in the mines with the men, made this a fascinating read. When things could not get any worse, her life takes a turn and she marries a man of great wealth. Life is not always perfect however, and this time, Lizzie goes from riches to rags.
An utterly fascinating story about a spunky, gutsy, and proud woman whom fortune touched and then abandoned.
