Celebrating a lifetime’s affinity with Dickens and looking for a heartfelt way to honor his late wife, Norman Whaler is delighted to announce the launch of ‘Tiny Tim & The Ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge’. Picking up from where Dickens left off, the novel is poised to resonate with curious fans around the world.
Grosse Pointe, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2013 -- While he’s been a life-long fan off all things Dickens, Norman Whaler shared a number of burning questions with millions of others around the world – what happened to Tiny Tim after he didn’t die? What was Mr. Scrooge’s fate? And what would Dickens have written next? In Whaler’s newly-released sequel to ‘A Christmas Carol’, each of these questions and more are answered with gusto.
‘Tiny Tim & The Ghost of Ebenezer Scrooge’ is the culmination of a lifetime’s work on the part of Whaler. The novel was also released to honor the memory of his darling wife Patricia, who passed away in 2011 and also shared a love of Dickens’ work.
YES! OLD SCROOGE IS DEAD, to begin with, just seven days before Christmas. Tiny Tim, now a young man who has lost his sweetheart love, Becky, must battle the demons of anger and lost faith with the recent death of his best friend and benefactor.
Watch as Scrooge's Ghost returns to haunt Tim to reveal what real faith is . . . and the true meaning of Christmas!
As the author explains, he adds faith-based lessons to Dickens’ timeless classic.
“While there are many Christian lessons to be found in my narrative, one main question that many people have is this: What truly does it mean to have faith? And then after that, what do you do with that faith? This book gives you an answer! Tiny Tim faces his own moral crisis, just as Mr. Scrooge did in the original story,” says Whaler.
Continuing, “My entertaining sequel retains the charm and style of the original story, even down to the use of the same music. Stunning illustrations accompany the prose and give readers a well-rounded extra dose of Dickens that I like to think he’d be proud of.”
While blessed to be releasing his book, Whaler is well aware that Dickens deserves the real credit.
“Without his wonderful characters, inspiration and impact on the world of literature – none of this would be possible. It’s such an honor to be releasing his sequel and I hope that my lessons of faith leave readers with something to think about. May the blessings of Christmas shine down upon you!” he adds.
With the book’s popularity set to increase, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.
