Cosy up with A Christmas Carol, read by Charles Dickens’ great-granddaughter, Monica Dickens

9781448206797Christmas past, present, and future are brought vividly to life by Charles Dickens’ great-granddaughter, Monica Dickens, reading  A Christmas Carol, together with the original text.

Christmas can be happy and difficult in equal measure. Charles and Monica Dickens recognised this and both have left an extraordinary legacy affirming the power of giving.

Even though we might be familiar with the tale, first published in 1843 – where Scrooge, the most miserly of misers is shown the true meaning of Christmas by four ghostly visitors – this story of charity and redemption is still relevant today. Here, Monica Dickens reads A Christmas Carol as it was read to her by her grandfather, who in turn heard it from the author himself. This recording is the original radio version, with enhanced quality and new music to honour them both.

Monica Dickens gave an everlasting gift to others by establishing the Samaritans on Cape Cod and the Islands in Falmouth, Massachusetts in 1977. Proceeds from sale will benefit Samaritan crisis lines, support groups for those who have lost someone to suicide, and community outreach programs.

This combined audio and ebook is perfect for snuggling up in front of the fire as Christmas draws near.

God Bless Us, Every One!
