    A rich man’s obsessive search for an heir blinds him to his own child in this classic Victorian novel of greed, pride, and family ties.  For shipping magnate Paul Dombey, business is the essence of life. He runs his firm and his family with the same calculating efficiency. Showering attention on his sickly son, who is destined to take over the family business, Mr. Dombey diligently ignores his daughter, Florence. In his unloving eyes, she is nothing more than a “base coin that couldn’t be invested.”  In time, despite her father’s neglect, Florence grows into a capable and strong-willed woman. Dombey’s callousness, meanwhile, sets in motion his own eventual downfall. In this classic tale of ambition, pride, and redemption, Charles Dickens presents a rich and sprawling portrait of a man, his dysfunctional family, and the complex times in which they lived.

    In 1901 he married Frances Blogg, to whom he remained married for the rest of his life.   
     
    For many he is known as a very fine novelist and the creator of the Father Brown Detective stories which were much influenced by his own beliefs.  A large man – 6’ 4” and 21st in weight he was apt to be forgetful in that delightful way that the British sometimes are – a telegram home to his wife saying he was in one place but where should he actually be…….?   
     
    He was prolific in many other areas; he wrote plays, short stories, essays, loved to debate and wrote hundreds of poems.   
     
    G K Chesterton died of congestive heart failure on 14th June, 1936 and is buried in Beaconsfield just outside of London.
