The English Orphans Summary

This story revolves around Mary, who becomes an orphan after her mother, who removed her and her siblings to Boston after their father died in England, dies after a protracted illness. Her brother, who has been working himself to death to support them, dies the very same night. Her sister, Ella, is beautiful and blonde, and a rich woman decides she looks so much like her recently-deceased daughter, that she decides to adopt her. Mary, who looks nothing like her sister, is destined for the poor-house, along with her younger sister, Alice, who is sickly.
