Friday Freebie: The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge by Charlie Lovett

Congratulations to Jon Butters, winner of last week’s Friday Freebie, People Like You by Margaret Malone.

This week’s book giveaway is The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge by Charlie Lovett. But wait, there’s more! The good people at Penguin Classics will also send one lucky reader a copy of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, part of their beautiful Christmas Classics series (pictured at right), which also includes books by Louisa May Alcott, L. Frank Baum, Anthony Trollope, Nikolai Gogol, and E. T. A. Hoffmann. If you're like me, you'll want to collect all the books in this handsome set and make them part of your annual holiday reading.

Keep scrolling for more information about The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge, the new novel by Charlie Lovett.

The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge is a delightful sequel to Dickens’s beloved A Christmas Carol by the bestselling author of First Impressions and The Bookman’s Tale. On a hot summer day some twenty years after he was famously converted to kindness, Ebenezer Scrooge still roams the streets of London, spreading Christmas cheer, much to the annoyance of his creditors, nephew, and his employee Bob Cratchit. However, when Scrooge decides to help his old friend and former partner Jacob Marley, as well as other inhabitants of the city, he will need the assistance of the very people he’s annoyed. He’ll also have to call on the three ghosts that visited him two decades earlier. By the time they’re done, they’ve convinced everyone to celebrate Christmas all year long by opening their wallets, arms, and hearts to those around them. Written in uncannily Dickensian prose, Charlie Lovett’s The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge is both a loving and winking tribute to the Victorian classic, perfect for readers of A Christmas Carol and other timeless holiday tales.
