“The Story of a Half Sovereign” resembles traditional work of the late nineteenth century. It possesses a trace of its ancestors in echoes of Dickens, as well as some similarities to the genuine issues featured in the Irish courts during Albert’s tenure as solicitor. However, beyond its significance as a simple story, “The Story of a Half Sovereign” serves to demonstrate the political and spiritual climate in which Warren and Jack developed. Their father’s insistence on personal integrity and biblical morality, his early frustrations with privilege among the ruling class, and his conviction to perform his Christian duty were not lost on Albert’s sons.
