Jack O'Malley hates Christmas!  And saying so is a major understatement.  Finally venturing out to do some shopping his day changes from irritating to plain strange, when he encounters a young woman named Carol at a coffee shop. 
Asked to help remember an older song, he finds himself whirling through time, going back to his youthful years, and going to poor African village to view the conditions of poverty up close.  Irritated with Carol for pointing out his shortcomings, he is frantic to return to life as he knows it.  However he is not sure that will ever happen.
A quick book to read, small and compact, you will find the correlation to Dickens' A Christmas Carol, very impelling.  Bob Hartman has brought a story with a twist and presents the story with a modern twist.  96 pages US $9.95 4 stars.
