  • "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."

  • "The Battle of Life: A Love Story is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in 1846. It is 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 a historic battle. Some characters refer to the battle as a metaphor for the struggles of life, hence the title."@en
