One Dollar’s Worth by O. Henry

by sandraseamans

I love the work of O. Henry.  His stories always strike at the heart of what it is to be human, both the good and the bad.  “One Dollar’s Worth” is a story about love and revenge.  A criminal the judge sent to jail is out and he’s come back to kill the judge’s daughter who is engaged to the district attorney.  As the loving pair go out on a plover shoot Mexico Sam comes after them.  A twist of fate and love saves the pair.
