The Spirit Of Christmas by Lauraine Henderson is a wonderful contemporary retelling of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. The themes are the same but everything has been bought up to date.
There is a wonderful warm feeling that pervades the novel. It is a really fun read.
The reader is delighted by the characters. The ‘real’ meaning of Christmas is celebrated. It is about a generosity of spirit.
Money is important in that it gives us choice. However when work and making money is your priority, you have got your priorities wrong.
Surrounded by snow and kind hearts, this is a perfect read for the Christmas season – or for any time of year to give you a burst of nostalgia, a warm heart and a correct set of priorities.
A delightful read. A wonderful reworking of an old classic.
