The Golden Fleece (A. L. O. E.)

$19.00 $17.50

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).

Antagonist Caleb Coffin—and what an antagonist he is—insists that two motives sway the human race, the love of gold and the love of praise. He attributes the latter primarily to the woman, who, though she sacrifices money, time, and strength, will not sacrifice her vanity, or love of being admired.

The vicar’s daughter Philomel, whose profusion of golden locks still falls on her shoulders, is on a quest to keep the village school open. But Caleb challenges her motives and exposes the secret desires that drive her works of charity. And deep down she knows he’s right.

Determined to prove him wrong, she takes on his brutal three-pronged challenge. Tensions rise, then Philomel does the unthinkable!

Description

The Golden Fleece

Antagonist Caleb Coffin—and what an antagonist he is—insists that two motives sway the human race, the love of gold and the love of praise. In The Golden Fleece, Caleb sees in his wife too much of this love of praise.  Though she sacrifices money, time, and strength, she will not sacrifice her vanity, or love of being admired.

The vicar’s daughter Philomel, whose beautiful golden locks fall to her shoulders, is on a quest to keep the village school open. But Caleb challenges her motives and exposes the secret desires that drive her works of charity. And deep down she knows he’s right.

Determined to prove him wrong, she takes on his brutal three-pronged challenge. Tensions rise, then Philomel does the unthinkable!

About the Author, England’s beloved A. L. O. E. 

Charlotte Maria Tucker (1821 – 1893) was a prolific writer and poet for children and adults. Mrs. Tucker humbly preferred to write under the pseudonym A.L.O.E. (a Lady of England).  Many regard The Golden Fleece as one of her finest works, as it forces the reader to consider – is Caleb Coffin right?  Does hypocrisy hide beneath even some of our most charitable deeds?  Be prepared for quite a surprise ending!
