The Battle of Life is one of Dickens’ less known works. It takes place on a site that was an old battlefield, setting the backdrop for the novel. It narrates the true love and rare sacrifice of two sisters. Dr. Jeddler, a cheerful widower, lives in a village with his two daughters, Grace and Marion, and their servants, Clemency Newcome and Ben Britain.

Albert Heathfield is betrothed to the younger daughter, Marion, but in a shameful act witnessed by Clemency, she is found with another man. The embarrassment causes her to run away and not return. Albert then marries Grace instead. The marriage is happier than expected, but one question persists: why did Marion elope with the other man?

With well-crafted pacing, Dickens tells the story of two sisters’ love for one another.
