In the sequel to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Tiny Tim, now a grown well-to-do young man, builds to a crisis of faith after he loses his love and soul-mate years earlier. It all comes to a head when old Scrooge, his benefactor, friend, and second father dies just days before Christmas. Blaming God and rejecting Christmas, Tim slips more and more into an uncaring mood with only a tenuous need to live on. Scrooge’s ghost now returns to show Tim what he does not understand about true faith when bad things happen to good people. Tim is shamed by an example of real faith and finally begins to understand what Christmas really means in Tiny Tim and The Ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge, The sequel to A Christmas Carol.

Norman Whaler has brilliantly written a sequel to the famous A Christmas Carol. Inside this stunning tale, readers find themselves lost in Tiny Tim’s world. The world is very much like our own. Poverty and suffering all around. This time, however, Tiny Tim is suffering the loss of two great people in his life. Ebenezer Scrooge comes back as a ghost to Tiny Tim. His message is that he came back because three people need help right away and Tiny Tim must come with him. Tiny Tim, bless his heart, doesn’t hesitate to go with Ebenezer Scrooge. So the journey begins…lessons are learned and it’s another heart-melting tale that readers won’t ever forget. I enjoyed following Tiny Tim’s new adventure as the story unfolded. This is a new classic that will become everyone’s new favorite Christmas tale. Overall, I highly recommend this beautiful piece to readers everywhere. Tiny Tim and the Ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge is definitely a must read for all.
