In 1843, with his most recent books bringing in almost no income and his wife pregnant with their fifth child, Dickens had to face facts.

Only an innate sense of courage could make him risk losing everything and result in one of the greatest literary gifts ever given to the world: the magical A Christmas Carol. In Patricia K. Daviss extraordinary fact-based novel, the writing of A Christmas Carol becomes a dramatic focal point in English history.

Not only did it put Charles Dickens back on his feet and assure his future reputation as one of the most revered authors of all time, but it also made him a hero of his day. As we watch Dickens fight against crooked publishers and greedy creditors and get to know the historical figures of the times, we become immersed in a world imaginatively re-created by a talented new author. In the tradition of the bestsellers The Alienist and The Professor and the Madman, A Midnight Carol will enchant readers and prove a delightful Christmas gift tradition.
