Overview

THE PRICE SHE PAID....DEALS WITH AN UNHAPPY MARRIAGE AND REMARRIAGE FOR WEALTH! 180 PAGES IN PRINT! WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO MAKE MILDRED HAPPY? A GOOD READ!

At the death of John Gower, his widow and daughter, Mildred, find themselves with only a few thousand dollars, as the family lived almost up to the limit of Gower's income. Mildred's mother tells her it is necessary that she marry money.
Mildred is fond of Stanley Baird, but her hopes in this direction are shattered by the announcement of his engagement to another woman. Mrs. Gower marries Presbury, an elderly man who thinks she is wealthy, and when he learns the truth he begins taunting Mildred until she is willing to do anything to escape from her humiliating position.

Presbury arranges a marriage between Mildred and a multimillionaire, General Siddal. The bride soon discovers that while her husband will buy anything for her she wants, so that he can make an impression upon the world with her beauty, he will not give her any money. This forces her to realize that she is hardly more than a piece of furniture in the General's establishment. She leaves him, and meeting Baird learns that he and his wife have separated. He undertakes to furnish her with funds for the cultivation of her voice for an operatic career, with the hope that one day they will be free to marry.

Mildred makes slow progress. Her voice is good but uncertain. She meets a young lawyer, Donald Keith, who tells her she will never succeed because she is too fond of luxury and ease.

Meanwhile she discovers through Keith's investigation that she was not legally married to General Siddall, as his first wife was still living confined in an insane asylum. The General has made many attempts to get her to come back to him, but she refuses. Finally she declines to take any more money from Baird, and by economy, self denial, and hard work succeeds in her musical ambition. Having achieved her independence she is now free to choose between Stanley Baird and Donald Keith, to both of whom she owes a debt of gratitude. Her choice is a happy one, and leaves the story of this typical American girl perfectly rounded out.
