The Battle of Life. A Love Story


The Battle of Life. A Love Story

DICKENS, Charles

Regular price $150.00 Sale

A novella by Charles Dickens, the fourth of his five "Christmas Books," coming after The Cricket on the Hearth and followed by The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain. The setting is an English village that stands on the site of an historic battle, the battle being a metaphor for the struggles of life. A relatively unknown Dickens work, unlike the wildly popular A Christmas Carol.
