The ghosts of Dickens' past the untold story of a simple act of charity

Summary: Timely advice from a friend leads the struggling author, Charles Dickens, into peril as he does some soul-searching involving his desire to write for finanacial security. This fuels his own fears and self-pity, but he receives unexpected help for a young girl, who reawakens in him a desire to refocus his priorities. Unless he can discover the healing power of a simple act of charity, his dream of truly making a difference will be as dead as a doornail. What happens next are the events that led to Dickens' inspiration to write his greatest story, 'A Christmas carol'.
