This is a modern-day twist to Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Uncle Eben isn't the bah humbug that Scrooge is. He just doesn't want to include the religious aspect into the Christmas season. He loves Christmas and gets caught up in it but without the Christ. He just doesn't want to offend anyone. A few days before Christmas he meets up with the Witness who shows him his past, present and future if he continues on the road he's on. It is a very cute fun read for the whole family. It isn't a real long book only about 100 pages. The plot and setting moved smoothly and had a Christmas feel about it. Very easy and quick to read. I loved it.

"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
