“This 1900s historical novel shares Anna Rycroft’s life, which is changed by some startling encounters with Dickins’s A Christmas Carol characters.”–Publisher’s description.
She has a powerful voice able to mesmerize the vaudeville audiences, but Annalise Rycroft has spent her whole life afraid she’ll be lost to obscurity. During the 1918 flu epidemic she has a feverish experience: characters from her favorite book unlock a hidden part of her past, which involves an absent father and a missing younger brother. As Annalise rises to stardom, a stranger with fears and failing of his own takes center stage in her life. Together will they be able to find significance in their lives?”
