Charlotte Maria Tucker (1821 – 1893) was a prolific writer and poet for children and adults, who preferred to write under the pseudonym A.L.O.E. (a Lady of England).
The sequel to a major Lamplighter favorite, The Giant Killer. Anyone you know – child or adult – who is discouraged in their warfare with sin in this life can gain strength from these stories.
In The Battle, through circumstances beyond their control, the Roby family find themselves separated and left to each fend alone through unforeseen trials. Will they skillfully wield the sword, as they had been taught?
Jostled in the rough thoroughfare of the world, Aleck is forced to obey promptly, act decidedly, and expose himself fearlessly and freely. What he needs most is a quick hand, a ready eye, and a gallant heart! Just as the thunderous waves threaten to swallow him up, he sees a life-boat in the midst of the storm! A welcome new addition to the Lamplighter Rare Collector’s Series, from the author fondly known as “A Lady of England” (A. L. O. E.).
Character themes in this story: pride, willfulness, selflessness, selfishness and sibling rivalry.
Originally written in 1857. The cover is a facsimile of the original clothbound edition.
“This is the continued story of the Robys and the Probyns from The Giant Killer. As expected, this book was engaging, challenging and convicting. Whenever I read a Lamplighter book, I always receive spiritual nourishment.” — Susie, Millersburg, Ohio
