Item Description...
Seventeen years ago, Ebenezer Scrooge was visited by three spirits in the middle of the night, each with the same mission to see the old miser redeemed. Were they angels? Through a painstaking journey through the past, present and future, Ebenezer faced the terrifying truths of his existence and woke up the next morning a new man, putting aside his love of money and embracing instead the love of mankind and charity. Now, new mysteries unfold as Ebenezer faces the challenges of being daily rejected as a lunatic or revered as a spiritual leader. The wheels in his head turn when his nephew Fred asks the ultimate question, "Uncle, do you think the apparitions were ghosts or spirits? Angels? Or just a dream?"Tiny Tim, now married with a fourmonth old daughter, suddenly fears he is being watched and by who or what, he doesn't know. Yet, when he sees a dark figure out his window of his modest home, his health starts to slip as it did in his youth. A familiar looking young boy bumps into Mr. Scrooge who is always seen travelling alone. After Ebenezer takes a liking to little Jack, the child reveals that he is more than he seems and takes the old man to a place where all of life's possibilities are stored. As the story reaches a climax, Jack teaches Mr. Scrooge the importance of letting the past go and embracing the purpose he was truly designed by God to fulfill.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
good stuff.  Dec 14, 2009
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this, but it's really a skillful, even-handed smattering of everything you could possibly want a follow-up to A Christmas Carol to be. It is mindful of Dickens in a bright, vivid way, but is also shaded with the dark existential elements that accompanied the original. First, I was taken aback with how well the author portrayed these famous characters. I wasn't expecting that, since every modern take on a sequel or some interpretation of classic fiction I've ever read has been completely implausible and genuine association with the original becomes unrecognizable ("Scarlett", anyone?). Fortunately, Howell beautifully captured the spirit and tone of the characters while bringing them to life in a thoroughly new way. I won't say in an "updated", way because this story doesn't need to be "updated", but she made it all even more believable (for lack of a better word). Particularly in the characters' reactions to the supernatural aspects of the plot - there are no false steps, and one of the most fascinating aspects of this for me was the reactions of the townspeople to Scrooge's claims of seeing a ghost, as well as the change in his personality.

While there are certainly Christian overtones, this book is not your garden-variety Christian fiction. The overarching themes are for people of any persuasion; the power and importance of the individual life, and the part that spoke to me the most: "...the only thing that matters now is what IS..." these gently surface through the many plot twists.

Oh, I would also like to add, for any prospective readers, I noticed a review complaining about typos or something...maybe I was just caught up in the story, but I didn't notice a significant or even mildly distracting problem. I've worked as a copy editor in the past, and sure, there were a couple of things near the beginning, but the truth is that there's a couple of typos in basically every book published, ESPECIALLY in bestsellers that get churned out super fast. Nature of the beast.

Anyway I would highly recommend Ebenezer - whether you're a big Dickens fan and you want a well-crafted spin on the continuation of A Christmas Carol, or even if you (are a crazy person) and don't really care for Dickens, this also really works as page-turner that will have you transported. It's amazing how much was packed into 243 pages.
A Fantastic Read!  Nov 27, 2009
Loved the book! I read it while I was deployed and found it to be a great break from reality. The book really focuses on family and the meaning of true happiness. The author did a great job bringing back the characters from the original Christmas Carol and gave them some spark. I recommend this book for anyone curious about what happends to Scrooge and how his new found happiness refelected on those around him.
The Rest of the Story of a Great Classic  Aug 18, 2009
If you are a Charles Dickens fan or just enjoy the "The Christmas Story" you will really like Donna's continuation of the tale. She has a very creative imagination and uses it very well to continue the story of Scrooge. I was fascinated at by the new revelations she revealed about the characters as the story continued into the future years. The story continues Dickens story of a life changes by whom? I will let you decide as you read the rest of the story by Donna Howell.
Heart warming  Jul 18, 2009
This book was given to me as a present. I was overwhelmed by the writing quality of the young author as well as her character analysis. I heartily recommend this book to everyone, including hard as nails military war veterans like myself. The final few pages will warm your heart.
Ebenezer is a great book!  Mar 18, 2009
I found that this book is so interesting and daring that I couldn't put it down. It was funny in parts and yet stayed true to the character of Ebenezer.
I think most people will love this book and it's a great buy.
Donna Howell is a very talented writer and I look forward to her next book to see what she has in store for us readers.
