I read this as a library book in 2009, infact it was a new author, and I went on to read all his books. This is an atmospheric account of Tiny Tim Cratchit, now the grown up Mr Timothy. I enjoy reading all his book reviews as well. The important point of this posting, is that I just purchased this book from the Friends Bookstore for a mere dollar!! First edition, in nearly mint condition, no one else even looked at the book (and I couldn’t believe I had missed it since it was in the store from September onwards!). There are absolutely amazing deals in this store.
