He Fell in Love with His Wife
by Edward P. Roe


This book is about James Holcroft, a farmer whose wife dies and who finds it difficult to continue doing all the outside work a farmer must do and still keep any sort of control over work that needs to be done in the home. He hires two different housekeepers, both with disastrous results. He confides to a friend that he is so discouraged after firing the second of these women that he is seriously considering selling his farm and giving up entirely. His friend tells him the solution is not to give up on having a farm but rather to give up on having a housekeeper. He tells him it would be a better idea for James to get married and he has just the woman in mind that he thinks would make James a suitable wife.

Alida Armstrong has just learned that her "husband" was not her husband at all because he neglected to tell her that he was already married. When his wife shows up and lets Alida know that she is still married to the man Alida thinks is her husband, Alida immediately leaves the house without even taking the time to pack her clothes. Having no money and having nowhere else to go, she ends up in the poorhouse which is run by James' friend.
