Charles Dickens is not feeling the Christmas spirit; his newest book is a flop, and his wife is planning a lavish holiday party that could bankrupt them. His publishers, on the verge of ruin, resort to blackmail to force Mr. Dickens to write a Christmas book, but his inspiration has run dry. Samantha Silva's novel vividly evokes the author and his era, as the downtrodden Dickens takes one of his long walks around London and meets the mysterious Eleanor Lovejoy, who might be just the muse he needs. She propels Dickens on a Scrooge-like journey that upends his thoughts on generosity, friendship, ambition, and love—and the story he then writes will reinvent the modern celebration of Christmas.
