No current Talk conversations about this book.

A short Victorian novel, republished for the Kindle and available free. Miss Terry is the main character, a cantankerous and cynical old lady who bears quite a resemblance to the better known Scrooge of Dickens' creation. Miss Terry decides, on Christmas Eve, to throw out some old toys; rather than burning them, she decides to leave them in the street to see what happens.

Various people spot the toys, all confirming her idea that people are heartless and selfish - then an unexpected visitor gives a different twist to events.

It's a bit predictable and somewhat twee, but surprisingly likeable as a moral story of the era. There's some good characterisation, and the authorial viewpoint is not as strident as it might have been. ( )
