The Christmas Child. E-book. Formato EPUB

Un ebook di  Stretton Hesba  edito da Faligi, 2011

Stretton's most popular book, Jessica's First Prayer, was first published in the journal Sunday at Home in 1866 and the next year as a novel. By the end of the nineteenth century, Jessica's First Prayer had sold at least a million and a half copies. Brian Alderson notes that number of copies was "nearly ten times as many as Alice in Wonderland." Stretton's popular book began a genre of stories about homeless children "that successfully combined elements of the sensational novel and the religious tract and helped introduce the image of the poor, urban child into the Victorian social conscious." She wrote a sequel, Jessica's Mother, published in Sunday at Home in 1866 and as a book in 1904. The Jessica books are about a homeless girl in Victorian London, abandoned by an alcoholic mother who is an actress, who finds comfort and religious support in a friendship with Daniel Standring, an owner of a coffee stall near a railroad. Jessica is a child actress who then becomes too big for children's productions. She is beaten by her mother, receives little to eat, and wanders London. Standring, as a chapel keeper in a Methodist church, helps her out and, as a result, re-evaluates his concept of religion and respectability.
