The story begins with an intriguing fortune offered to John Harmon by his late father, a rich dust contractor, in his will. To receive the money, John must marry a certain Bella Wilfer who he has never met. He is returning from the exile enforced by his father and confides in a ship’s mate who attempts to murder him. The mate gets killed instead, leaving one inconvenient corpse. Because John is considered dead (the body is found with his papers), the money passes to Mr Boffin, the kind-hearted assistant to Harmon's late father. Boffin and his wife adopt young Bella, who is determined to marry for money. Harmon comes into Boffin's employ disguised as John Rokesmith. Bella does not fall for John initially. And through kindly Boffin’s contrivances, Bella learns to hate money and fall for her suitor under his false name. Eventually the Boffins and Bella learn of his true identity. And the villainous one-legged Silas Wegg’s plot to blackmail Mr Boffin is brought to light. Our Mutual Friend was the last novel Charles Dickens completed. It is one of Dickens's most satisfying novels, and a fitting denouement to his prolific career. -- Alix Wilber Charles Dickens (1812-1870) is one of the most acclaimed and popular writers of all time.
