Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

1843, London. Though the approaching Christmas looks bleak at the home of the Dickens family, Charles and his pregnant wife Catherine try to maintain a good cheer for their four young children. Debts are mounting, food is scarce, and Charles' books-according to his miserly publisher-are no longer selling.

The Charles has an idea, which comes to him in the ghostly form of Oliver Cromwell, the long-dead, spirit-crushing, Lord Protector of England. A Christmas Carol will be Dicken's most brilliant work yet, both for its mass appeal and underlying political message. But many sinister forces oppose the success of this literary gem. And it is only through faith, kindness and the innate goodness of mankind that A Christmas Carol will become a timeless classic-and that the young writer Charles Dickens will truly save Christmas for all of England...
