Synopsis

This Christmas novel, set in London in 1843, tells the story of an orphan named Alfy Wickfield, who meets and is befriended by England’s most famous writer, Charles Dickens. Over the course of a few unforgettable weeks, the two unlikely friends, each guarding secrets about the past, set out on a creative journey through the dark streets of the great city that will culminate in the author’s best-loved and most enduring story, A Christmas Carol. As Dickens breathes life into his characters – Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the Spirits of Christmas – and pours his heart into a ghost story that will cement his reputation of all time, his young companion learns the meaning of sacrifice, the price of loyalty and the power of forgiveness.
