Had Charles Dickens a terrible life when he was a child, or his parents provided a fairy tale childhood for him? His father was sent to the prison for being in debt two times in Charles life. At ten years old Charles was forced to go to work to support the family walking five miles one way to work and working ten-hour days. He wanted a college degree so badly he could taste it. He knew hard work and how to keep his word. He had an extremely high IQ and what seemed like a photographic memory. There are different and varying opinions on whether he was a ladies man or not; but once you research Charles, you cannot help but to label him as a ladies man; some may even label him as a pedophile with his very young sister-in-law. You will find out the details of the terrible railroad accident he was involved in with his girlfriend and her mother. He became obsessed with hypnotism and was more than happy to make house calls to perform the mesmerism treatment on others to help with their afflictions.

Inside you'll read about

  • Where Life Began
  • Charles and Maria
  • Charles and His Children
  • Love, Lust, Infidelity
  • Famous Works of Dickens
  • Some Shocking Truths About England
  • Close Brush with Death

And much more

Dickens had ten children total, and he was not into the business of raising kids and spending time with them, but when he divorced Catherine, he wound up with eight of the children and one son stayed behind to live with Catherine. Dickens never seemed to be the touchy, feely, hands-on type father and he traveled extensively and often to promote his books and lecturing. Even though Dickens had planned where he was to be buried, his wishes were not granted when he died. This book will answer that question. Even though his book "A Christmas Carol" did not seem like it with Ebenezer Scrooge, Dickens always felt sorry for the less fortunate children of England.
