About Book

Book Description
Arthur was an orphan raised by Reverend Davis -- and the moment he came of age, he began working at repaying that man for his kindness. Arthur is in love, and has always been in love with, Helen, the Reverend's daughter. When Helen is sent away to travel the world, Arthur is devastated. But instead of moping about, he does his best to be the best that he can. He wins scholarships attends college. Then Helen returns, but she is not the same woman that left Arthur three years ago. She's older and more sophisticated. Arthur remains nothing more than a talented poet, something to be appreciated, but not loved. Can Arthur win Helen's heart as a mere poet?


Upton Sinclair was an American novelist -- and a notorious muckraker. He is known for writing The Jungle a book about the horrible conditions of the meatpacking industry in Chicago. The reforms that the book suggested did not go into immediate effect, but the national outcry resulted in President Theodore Roosevelt's creation of the Pure food and Drug Law. /King Midas was originally published as Springtime and Harvest and is the first of Upton Sinclair's published works.

The arrangement, it is scarcely necessary to say, pleased Helen very much indeed; the atmosphere of luxury and easy superiority which she found at her aunt's was much to her taste, and she looked forward to being a center of attraction there with the keenest delight. In the meantime, however, she slaked her thirst for happiness just as well at Oakdale, accepting with queenly grace the homage of all who came to lay their presents at her feet. Sunday proved to be a day of triumph, for all the town had come to church, and was as much stirred by the glory of her singing as Arthur had predicted. After the service everyone waited to tell her about it, and so she was radiant indeed.
