This wonderfully written, thoroughly entertaining, comic-tragic bestseller from 1886 tells the story of a heart-broken father's adventures in his search of his little daughter, the victim of a parental kidnapping. The novel's tone is quite Dickensian, with wonderful oddball characters and hilarious side stories. "The Wreckers" deserves to be firmly ensconced in the literary (sub-)canon that would includes books dealing the Parental Kidnapping and the subject of Paternal Love.

From an 1886 review of the book: "The title is deceptive to start with; "The Wreckers" is not a "social study;" it is hardly more than the simple narrative of an honest, high-minded Irishman of humble station who is deserted by his unworthy wife. She takes their daughter with her, and after this hero, Mike Barney by name, learns that his wife is drowned at sea, he devotes him self to finding his child. The disappointments of his search unsettle his reason. When at last he does find her, he quixotically determines not to claim her from the wealthy surroundings in which she has at last found herself. But eventually she is restored to the unselfish father, and the end is peaceful." [The Literary Review, Boston, Jul. 24, 1886]
