Mr. Dickens and His Carol by Samantha Silva

Mr. Dickens and His Carol by Samantha Silva

"This book is a fan letter to Dickens himself that says, I know you were a flawed man who had a heart as big as the world.  That you saw Christmas as a time to reconnect with our humanity and revel in even our smallest blessings.  And that you lived with so much darkness, inside and out, but leaned - urgently, frantically - always towards the light."  With an author's note like that, how could you not want to read this book?  Mr. Dickens and his Carol was a delightfully charming take on the events that led up to the writing of one of the most beloved seasonal classics of all time, A Christmas Carol.  Settle in under a cozy, warm blanket with a cup of steaming, hot chocolate and prepare to have all the Christmas feels.  Thank you so much to Flatiron books for sending me a copy of this lovely debut.  3.5 stars.
