About the book
This year Charlie Lovett, the bestselling author of The Bookman’s Tale and First Impressions, works his literary magic on everyone’s favorite Christmas curmudgeon in The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge. Written in the style of Dickens, Lovett’s trim new novel is both a sequel and tribute to A Christmas Carol. Much of the way we celebrate Christmas today and the “reason for the season” can be traced back to the philosophies presented in A Christmas Carol. Lovett plays with Dickens’s timeless message about the true meaning of Christmas and makes it resonate for a modern audience.
The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge opens on a hot summer day, twenty years after Scrooge was famously converted to kindness. He still roams the streets of London, spreading Christmas cheer, much to the annoyance of his creditors, nephew, and his employee Bob Cratchit. However, when Scrooge decides to help his old friend and former partner Jacob Marley, as well as other inhabitants of the city, he will need the assistance of the very people he’s annoyed. He’ll also have to call on the three ghosts that visited him two decades earlier. By the time they’re done, they’ve convinced everyone to celebrate Christmas all year long by opening their wallets, arms, and hearts to those around them.
