This is the fictional story behind Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol – a tale of an author’s roller-coaster of a life, some stories followed avidly by his readers, others a disaster for no discernible reason. Its a tale of money and its hold over people. A tale of families. Love, both unrequited and otherwise. It is a tale of hope.

This was miss-placed in our 9 – 12 section, I think by a new member of staff. The cover is, I think rather dull, and could have reflected the story a little more. Perhaps with a flash of purple somewhere. A hardback book with boards, and no dust-jacket. It was a superb book to pull off the shelf – a wonderful tale to compliment Dickens’ probably most famous story. Ideal for Christmas too.

Beautifully written – I loved it, a real gem of a find.
