The Holly Tree
Classic Short Story
a short story. A man believes his beloved is in love with his friend, so he determines to leave for America and forget his troubles. A snowstorm strands him at an inn, the Holly-Tree, and he thinks about all the inns he’s been in. After the snowstorm his friend rides up with his new bride, who turns out to be the main character’s beloved’s cousin. So the main character goes back to his love and marries her. Just a short little narrative that is filled with Dicken’s way of describing everything, very evocative.
