Overview

Redlaw is a teacher of chemistry who often broods over wrongs done to him and grief from his past.

He is haunted by a spirit, who is not so much a ghost as Redlaw's phantom twin and is "an awful likeness of himself...with his features, and his bright eyes, and his grizzled hair, and dressed in the gloomy shadow of his dress..." This specter appears and proposes to Redlaw that he can allow him to "forget the sorrow, wrong, and trouble you have known...to cancel their remembrance..." Redlaw is hesitant at first, but finally agrees. However, before the spirit vanishes it imposes an additional consequence: "The gift that I have given you, you shall give again, go where you will."

This is probably one of my favorite Dickens works, although it is not very well known today. It is the last of his so-called Christmas Books, the first one being the famous A Christmas Carol. This one has some humor to it, but the main story is pretty bleak. Although it does have a happy ending. If you enjoy Dickens' work in general, then I think you will like this book.

She pounces on the mouse and kills it quickly. She buries the pery and follows the scent of rabbit. Rippleleaf sees the white tail. She pads silently foreward and pounces landing on its back. She killed it and drags it to camp. -Rippleleaf *-*
