"The stories contain pathos and humor in a historical, traditional setting. One cannot help but become emotionally drawn into the lives of the characters."

"The playwright has successfully taken some parts of the great novel "Les Miserables" and with some changes has dramatized them -- that is, intensified these parts into the dramatic form of "The Golden Gift."
In "The Bells Of Christmas Eve," Henry Scholberg has put into dramatic form a moving story of the goodness and evil that men sometimes experience. The play moves with felt certainty as does "The Golden Gift."
John Gracen Brown
Poet and playwright
