Lydia Gwilt in the American Melodrama Novel, or The Bride And Some Other People In The Tomb by Blueinkedfrost

'One of these American millionaires who seem to spring up like mushrooms after rain... They make their fortunes in hog bellies, piecing together railroad sidings for all of Maine, crowning themselves the king of ladies' hairpins, or some such concept. Ageing, dyspeptic, inattentive, and caring only for his next million and a safe digestive biscuit.' Lydia Gwilt travels to the New World to find herself in a terrible sensation novel. Lovely voice & a hectic romp through the genre tropes (Armadale)
