The battle of life a love story

Once upon a time there were two devoted sisters, Grace and Marion. The younger, Marion, is engaged to Alfred, whom the sisters have known since he was a boy. Alfred goes off to seek his fortune, but three years later, the sisters receive a letter saying he'll return soon to claim his bride. The night Alfred is due to arrive, Marion runs away with a neighboring landowner with a bad reputation who has made no secret of his lust for the beauteous girl. Fast-forward six years: Alfred and Grace are married, but they've never stopped mourning Marion. She returns home on Grace's birthday and reveals that she ran away because she knew that Grace secretly loved Alfred, and wanted to remove herself as an impediment to their union. But Marion isn't ruined! Far from it! She has been living chastely for the past six years with her aunt. Her virtue has caused the landowner to mend his dissolute ways, and he becomes Marion's suitor.

  • "Having for a subtitle "A Love Story," The Battle of Life is one of Charles Dickens's Christmas Books which was first published in 1846. Like other Christmas stories, The Battle of Life has a happy ending though without the employment of any religious themes or supernatural effects. It follows the life of a happy family composed of a father named Dr. Jeddlar and his two daughters Grace and Marion. Dr. Jeddlar also has a ward named Albert Heathfield who is in love with Marion and hopes to marry her. When Albert leaves the village to continue his studies, Marion is believed to be seduced to elopement by an infamous man in the village. After retuning and learning the story, Albert is deeply grieved. However, he soon develops a romantic relationship with the older sister Grace and ends up marrying her. On the birthday of their first daughter that they decided to name Marion, Grace's sister visits the family after a long absence. She declares that she never eloped, but only left to live with an aunt in order to leave Albert for her older sister. The story culminates in a warm scene in which the family is happily reunited."@en
