A Christmas Carol meets a very Northern Stranger Things in this funny, sweary and moving festive story
'Funny and touching and utterly brilliant -- Rachael Lucas
'A remarkable, funny, truly redemptive read' -- Miranda Dickinson
Theodora Quirke has no reason to be merry. It's bad enough that she has to work on Christmas Eve but now there's a drunk bloke dressed as Santa and claiming to be St Nick hanging around outside her flat. Given he's professing to be the giver of Christmas miracles and nearly 2000 years old, she's wary.
Things get even more weird when St Nick insists he's there to save Theo. And with the next St Nicholas Day somehow fast approaching, he's even got a plan that'll change her life forever.
It all seems pretty straightforward, apart from one awkward fact: Theodora Quirke doesn't actually need saving.
