Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887393586, Paperback)Every so often our attention is drawn to some intriguing historical finding or other. In Hard Times, for example, Unitarian Minister Daniel Panger discovers a rare literary treasure in an English chapel in the town of Godalming. Among dust-covered bundles of ledgers and church records in a baptistry he finds "one heavy volume of tooled leather, cracked and green with age..." He opens it and begins reading the journal that Charles Dickens wife Catherine kept while she and her husband visited America. At first, Catherine Dickens is reluctant to put her words on paper, being merely the mate of so celebrated an author. But in the course of her jottings she finds her own voice and becomes downright self-relevatory.
