We will be giving away a copy of Eben Kruge: How “A Christmas Carol” Came to be Written. Stay tuned for more info!
Eben Kruge, recipient of a ForeWord Clarion five-star book review, is a story wholly unlike A Christmas Carol, yet, like the Carol, a story of transformation. It is about Charles Dickens, the man, and the circumstances of his life at age thirty, and what inspired him to write his Christmas classic that for one hundred and seventy years at Christmas time has drawn people to their better nature and universally engendered a sense of concern and charity for the poor and downtrodden. The story setting is factual and will come as a surprise to most readers, as will the reality that A Christmas Carol was Dickens’s first completed fictional work after the events portrayed in Eben Kruge.
The author, Rich Adams, is a forensic engineering consultant, a Vietnam veteran, a former Army aviator, and a former ski instructor for Vail Resorts. He is also the first of three brothers to graduate from West Point. His first book, the award-winning historical novel, The Parting: A Story of West Point on the Eve of the Civil War, is the true and epic story of the West Point Class of 1861 during its final year at the Academy. Rich enjoys speaking to civic groups, schools and universities, church groups, book clubs, libraries, Academy alumni groups, museum-sponsored groups, special interest groups, and, most recently, a cruise ship audience. He and his wife live in Miramar Beach (Sandestin), Florida, after having raised their family in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he founded and later sold a regionally based environmental consulting company.
