My teacher always referred to Charles Dickens as Charlie Boy. She was cool ahead of her time and translated his writing into bite-sized proportions for bored students, stuck with the staple school diet of Jayne Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Great romantics of course, but I was looking for gritty.
Lizzie, like Bob, discovers that Christmas can be a tough time. Knowing Lizzie, I think she would have understood Bob’s predicament and done something to remedy it. Still, Scrooge had that honour and good luck to the old boy. He shows us that it’s never too late to change for the better.
I hope, if you’ve read the series of Lizzie Flowers books, you enjoyed them, either in series or as standalones. I plan to continue Lizzie’s story into wartime but I must complete a couple of other projects first. Thank you so much for your patience and support. Also, a 1000 thanks for your reviews on Amazon; they are unbelievably important to a writer. And I do hope this Christmas you’ll find a ton of good books under the Christmas tree.
Love and humbug,
