Pride and His Prisoners


(5 customer reviews)
Using the metaphorical imagery of a near catastrophe in an unfettered hot-air balloon, A.L.O.E. (A Lady of England) unapologetically illustrates our natural inclination to yield to the temptations of our enemy, Pride. As in real life, not a single character passes the litmus test as a series of wrong and sometimes devastating choices culminate in a chilling and terrifying episode.
But all is not lost, as the prisoners of Pride are loosed from bondage and relationships are restored. Written during the Victorian era, its codes of etiquette and societal roles are evident, but the truth remains that whether male or female, rich or poor, we can all benefit from a good dose of humility!

    Loved This Book This was my 3rd or 4th book by ALOE, and I very much enjoyed this one. I have often read aloud these books to my kids, but this one I read on my own. I admit I had to start it twice, but picking it up the second time I engaged quickly into the story. It is well written and thought provoking. In the beginning it personifies pride and makes you think how it might be lurking in your own life. I look forward to reading more from this author.

    Arrived Quickly and Was Packed With Care I ordered a book for my mom for Christmas. She loves Lamplighter. The book arrived promptly and was packaged with care. Only area I would change is if they had an option of a gift so it is not in a box that says where it is from on the side.
