Such light sentences, but they're brutal:

"She died a woman," said the Ghost, "and had, as I think, children."

"One child," Scrooge returned.

"True," said the Ghost. "Your nephew!"

Scrooge seemed uneasy in his mind; and answered briefly, "Yes."

"Father is so much kinder than he used to be, that home's like Heaven! He spoke so gently to me one dear night when I was going to bed, that I was not afraid to ask him once more if you might come home"

That alone says so much about Scrooges childhood. It seems that he was sent away by his father and that the man was so awful that even his daughter was too scared to talk to him. I really wonder what made him change his mind. Was he visited by ghosts, too?

It's so crazy that I haven't seen an adaptation that has included Scrooge's sister, despite the fact that her son is a super important character in the story
