This book starts out where A Christmas Carol left off, telling about Scrooge’s kindness and how it affects the people around him. He goes home one evening after a nice dinner to find Jacob Marley’s ghost: again. Marley now wants to escape the shadows and come into the Light, and he tells Scrooge exactly how to help him. They venture to relatives, friends, and old business partners to help Marley and find something about themselves along the way. This short but fun read adds a sequel to A Christmas Carol in true Dickens style.
