Wonderful. Late reading this one but I remembered it on a quiet morning and read it as I had my morning coffee.

I read Dickens too over Christmas and I didn’t think one bit of Scrooge’s love as other parts of the book got to me, I love how you said her love for Scrooge helped you to love Scrooge. That is the beauty of reading- how different parts hit different people and how upon a reread of his novel I will more than likely think about what that part meant you and allow it to be more meaningful to me.

Also, I just may have to purchase that Wintering book those quotes were fire! I really take strength in them this morning.
