Though best remembered for her contributions to juvenile literature as the creator of the beloved Pollyanna novels, author Eleanor H. Porter also wrote a number of novels intended for general audiences. Her gift for creating memorable characters is on full display in Oh, Money! Money!, in which an idiosyncratic aristocrat decides to determine which of his relatives is worthy of being bequeathed his vast fortune by giving them each a large sum of money and observing their subsequent actions, choices, and behaviors.
