"Tiny Tim was dead, to begin with. There was no doubt about that."

With this first line S. Daniel Smith grabbed my attention in his fan sequel to the Dickens classic 'A Christmas Carol.' Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the Spirits are a Christmas season tradition for my family. We ALWAYS watch the Muppet's adaptation of the story together, and sometimes read aloud the book itself. So, I felt compelled to read on and learn what caused Tiny Tim to die and how his death affected the rest of the family, especi

From the time of being a very little girl, "A Christmas Carol" has been my favorite Christmas story, movie and everything else. My Mother would say every year "Are you going to watch that again?" I would always reply yes, every time they show it, I will watch it. Now that I am much older (72) I still wait for it to be put on television, and have several actors that have played old Scrooge to be broadcast each year. The one thing I always questioned was his outcome. Yes the spirits managed to cha ...more

Dickens' "Christmas Carol" has always been a favorite book of mine and have read it many times over. When I came across "Saving Ebenezer" I was pleasantly surprised and I thought it only fitting that there would be a true ending to the story that Dickens had written. Needless to say I devoured this book and found it much in keeping with the original Dickens work. Ebenezer's final saving was indeed a surprise I was not expecting. I know many of you who have loved the original "Christmas Carol" wi ...more

Ever wonder what happened to Scrooge after the story was said and done? Did you ever ask yourself "now what"? Well, I happen to think this is a wonderful way to explore both of these answers!

We get a glimpse of life seven years after the three spirits visited Scrooge and how life changed for him and the Cratchits. I loved how his answers and doubts were answered in an unexpected but pleasant way. A satisfying tie-in to an old classic!

Have you ever wondered what became of Ebenezer Scrooge? Well, the classic story has come to life again through the words of author S. Daniel Smith. You will find yourself immersed in the lives of Scrooge and the Cratchit Family. The author weaved heartache, hope, and love into the story--a gripping combination that will have you wanting to finish the book in one sitting. I highly recommend this novella!

Loved this book. I'm glad the author is a Christian, and also resolved another matter that I had wondered about.

“'Mr. Scrooge, are you angry with God?' Ebenezer looked down at his shoes. 'Yes,'he muttered. 'I believe so. Does that make me a bad person?'"

Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol to pay his bills when his life took a turn downward. I have been a fan of Dickens for decades and have read every "sequel" to see how we ,a century and more later, see how things have changed...or not. As a retired minister, I read this after I received a review by another author because I respect her opinions. It's

Thoroughly enjoyable

This story was very well written. It was very intriguing seeing Scrooge 7 years after the visit from the three ghosts.

A bit of a let down

I don't feel like this book fulfilled it's promise. It had an interesting premise but it felt a bit disjointed.
