Libbey, Laura Jean: Pretty Madcap Dorothy. V1. 5 Jan 2010
Laura Jean Libbey (March 22, 1862 - October 25, 1924), was an American writer.The highly popular author of fiction, her works were what became known as dime novels. Today they would be categorised as formulaic romance novels. In 1898, at the age of 36, she married a lawyer. They did not have children. On her passing in 1924, she was buried in the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York. In the 1920s some of her novels were filmed.
"It's so hard for working-girls to get acquainted. They never meet a rich young man, and they don't want a poor one. It seems to me that a girl who has to commence early to work for her living might just as well give up forever all hopes of a lover and of marrying," declared Nadine Holt, one of the prettiest girls in the immense book-bindery, to the group of companions who were gathered about her. "It's get up at daylight, swallow your breakfast, and hurry to work; and it's dark before you are out on the street again. How can we ever expect to meet a marriageable fellow?"
