Who believes to know the phantom book described herein?

Beitrag von Culturist »

Good evening,

I have now been looking for a book I once held in my hands in a now closed second-hand bookshop in my home town for a long time. As I can only slightly remember it having been a novel that had anything to do with Boston and was likely to have been written by a(ny) nineteenth-century American author in the literary style of (social) realism or perhaps naturalism, I would like to ask if someone has got a clue for me :question: It might as well have been a sequal (either written by Howells himself or someone else) to The Rise of Silas Lapham, 1885, but just as well the authors might have been Holmes or Wolfe :question:

Thank you for your help in advance.
