Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is a holiday favorite and this new book, written in the style of Dickens, tells the story from the perspective of the character who was a ruthless taskmaster business partner who taught and influenced Scrooge and then saved him from the brink of a terrible fate. Jacob T. Marley is to A Christmas Carol as the world-famous Wicked is to The Wizard of Oz and is a masterfully crafted story teaching us, once again, the true meaning of Christmas.
