Sister Carrie is a novel written by Theodore Dreiser and published in 1900. The book tells the story of a young woman who moves to the big city in search of her own American dream.
Carrie Meeber is tired of country life and moves to Chicago where her sister lives. On her train ride she meets an older man named Charles, whom she feels attracted to, but decides to focus on finding work to pay the rent.
Although her true passion is acting, Carrie will start working in a local factory in a very hard job but that she knows she has to fulfill.
One day, walking down the street, Carrie meets Charles again and they decide to eat together. He highlights the beauty and charm of the young woman and offers her to quit her job and go live with him...
When Caroline Meeber boarded the afternoon train for Chicago, her total outfit consisted of a small trunk, a cheap imitation alligator-skin satchel, a small lunch in a paper box, and a yellow leather snap purse, containing her ticket, a scrap of paper with her sister's address in Van Buren Street, and four dollars in money.
