Christmas past, present, and future and the redemptive power of giving are brought vividly to life by Monica Dickens' reading of A Christmas Carol together with the original text.
Christmas can be happy and difficult in equal measure. Charles and Monica Dickens recognized this and both have left an extraordinary legacy affirming the redemptive power of giving.
First published in 1843, A Christmas Carol tells the timeless tale of Scrooge, the most miserly of all misers, and how he is shown the true meaning of Christmas by four ghostly visitors - his partner Marley, and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet To Come. By Christmas day, he has learnt his lesson and is willing to enter into the spirit of things.
Monica Dickens reads A Christmas Carol as it was read to her by her grandfather, who in turn heard it from the author himself. Monica Dickens gave an everlasting gift to others by establishing the Samaritans on Cape Cod and the Islands in Falmouth, Massachusetts in 1977. This recording is the original radio version which has been enhanced by new music and engineering to honor them both. Proceeds will benefit Samaritan crisis lines, support groups for those who have lost someone to suicide, and community outreach programs.
God Bless Us, Every One!
