Wayne S. WalkerSalem, ILAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5a tender storyJuly 28, 2014Wayne S. WalkerSalem, ILAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Twelve year Rosalie Joyce lives with her father Augustus and mother Norah, but they have no fixed abode. They are actors who travel from fair to fair in a caravan. Augustus is a cruel man who drinks and carouses. Norah ran away from home to marry him and lost all contact with her family, but she is now very ill. While at a fair in one town, a gentle old man gives the girl a picture of a Shepherd who loves and cares for her, so she and her mother begin reading about the Shepherd in the Bible, and Norah says that if something ever happens to her, Rosalie is to find her sister, Lucy Leslie, who married a minister.
A short time later Norah dies, and Augustus eventually remarries. Rosalies step-mother is also very cruel. Soon, the father is killed in an accident and his new wife plans to send Rosalie to an orphan home, so Rosalie sets off to find her aunt. Along the way several people help her and she in turn helps several others. But will she ever locate her aunts home? And how will she find the way? Mrs. O. F. Walton was born Amy Catherine Deck, the daughter of a minister. She married Octavius Frank Walton, who was also a minister, and became a British author of Christian children's books. Her career began with My Mates And I, written in 1870 but not published until 1873. Her first published work was My Little Corner in 1872. In 1877, A Peep Behind The Scenes was published. Although she wrote many more books, it is A Peep Behind the Scenes and Christie's Old Organ that have remained well known.
The basic premise of this tender story is that all that glitters is not gold. From Rosalies peep behind the scenes, she learns, and the reader will also learn, that we must not trust outward appearances, that there is no real joy in anything of this world, and that the only way of true happiness is found in keeping near the Good Shepherd. There are, of course, general references to Augustuss drinking and carousing and one mention of a character fetching his pipe and tobacco, but there is no explicit detail. Not everyone will agree with how the way to be saved is explained, but the major emphasis is simply upon trusting in Christ for forgiveness and then striving to follow His word in everything one does. That is certainly refreshing. A Peep Behind the Scenes outsold The Scarlet Letter by over two million copies in the 1800s. I have also read and reviewed Christie's Old Organ and its sequel, Christie, the Kings Servant.
