The book opens seven years after the famous events of A Christmas Carol. It is another Christmas Day and Ebenezer Scrooge - now aged 50 - has woken after a night of vivid and unpleasant dreams. Despite his wealth, Scrooge is still a miser, but he's beginning to have regrets about his life. He doesn't want to die as Marley did - 'There are few things more depressing than a funeral in an empty church' and he can't take his money with him when he dies, but how is he to spend it? With the help of his faithful clerk Cratchit, Scrooge sets up a charitable trust to provide education, hospitals, refuges for the homeless and assistance to the poor. With the attractive young Sasha and the handsome widow of Pewsey, Mrs Kincaid, to guide him along unfamiliar paths, Scrooge finally decides that life in the country suits him better in his later years. He discovers village life is full of surprises. The monthly sewing circle organized by Mrs Kincaid is a cover for something very different, and she introduces him to 'the rites of the old religion', the eight festivals in the calendar year related to the movement of the sun and the fertility of the land. This book is for anyone who wondered whatever became of Scrooge. Despite its Dickensian flavour the book is written in a modern, robust style with wit and panache. An unusual and entertaining read.
