Storyline

Dickens recalls a trip to Montreal in 1842 where he and Kate performed on stage. Kate is unhappy and very much wants to go home. Their return is a joyous one and they are happily reunited with their many children. As well, Kate is again pregnant. Charles takes an interest in Georgina, who Kate hires to help her about the house. The girl very much reminds Charles of his long lost Mary. He is outraged however when one of his books is pirated and widely published in the United States with absolutely no compensation for himself. He becomes concerned about his finances particularly when his latest book, Martin Chuzzlewit, sells less than expected. He is again resolved to buy back all of his copyrights. He is still shocked at the level of poverty to be found and promotes education as the solution. Written by garykmcd
