Description:

Horace and his mother Mrs. Cleveland embarked on a journey through dangerous robber infested country. The adventures that followed in a remote cave show how God was at work in those who were held captive. Horace was shackled for ransom, but the robbers were bound by different chains. A.L.O.E. develops this spiritual metaphor and points to being set free in Christ. "The Bible was to him as the Father's letter, treasured in the bosom of the Son; as the charter by which he held all his dearest hopes; as the 'pardon signed and sealed' granted to the prisoner by the grace of his King."--Google [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Tucker, Charlotte Maria

Author Image

Charlotte Maria Tucker (1821–1893) was an English author who wrote under the pseudonym A.L.O.E. (a Lady of England). Born in Middlesex, England, she was raised in a secular family but early in her life she adopted evangelical religious beliefs. Many of her early stories are simple poems and plays but her later writings had a strong moral tone. Even so she still wrote with a degree of realism and naturalism. During her life she wrote over 150 short stories and books, many of which were published in magazines. In 1875 she undertook missionary work in India. Some of her later stories were set in that country. She died in Amritsar in 1893. (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography)
