From the author of The Christmas Gift, another Christmas favourite.


"Marley was dead to begin with..." 

These chillingly familiar words begin Dickens' classic Christmas tale of remorse and redemption that readers worldwide have loved year after year for more than a century.

Yet with more sobriety we recall an essential player in this drama, paid homage by Scrooge after he proclaims his commitment to alter his path. "O Jacob Marley! Heaven and the Christmas-time be praised for this! I say it on my knees, old Jacob, on my knees!" 

What of old Jacob?

Who was this man? Why was he so evil? Why did he in fact get to visit Scrooge and usher in the experience that changed first Ebenezer and then so many of our lives? Why did Scrooge get a final chance to change and not Jacob Marley? 

Or did he?

Being called a new classic, Jacob T. Marley is to A Christmas Carol as the world-famous Wicked is to The Wizard of Oz. Written with a voice reminiscent of Dickens, this masterfully crafted story speaks of greed, redemption, love, and sacrifice. Jacob T. Marley has become a companion classic for Dickens fans around the world.
