I really enjoyed reading your review of this book!

This is not directly connected to Inventing Scrooge, but to "From the Bookpile" more generally. I'm the author of a book titled Charles Dickens in Love (Pegasus Books 2012). It deals with the influence (including religious influence) of three women on Dickens's life and fiction. I'd be happy to send you a copy -- no obligation!

Thank you very much for the offer! I'll contact you with my address.

I bought a copy of this for myself, then ordered copies for all my siblings for Christmas. However, as I got further into the book and found numerous grammatical gaffs and misnomers, I canceled the order. I agree with you that this could've been a very good book had the editor not been asleep at the wheel. Such a shame.
