Father Thomas Martin runs a shelter in the dangerous Tenderloin district and is accused of the murder of a young boy when he discovers his body. He is being framed, and attorney Peter Donley is trying to find a way to prove he is innocent. This is a very suspenseful and well-written novel.
This vignette was written by Charles Dickens in 1851. It is a far cry from the metamorphosis of character and heart we see in his well known story, A Christmas Carol. This vignette was extremely personal to Dickens. To this day, the message is still stark in meaning, and still universal to readers.
