With audio narration by James Earl Jones. "The tale is unfolded with such mastery, humor, and emotional force that we are entirely within its power.” – The New York Times Book Review. Jonathan Toomey is the best woodcarver in the valley, but he is always alone and never smiles. No one knows about the mementos of this lost wife and child that he keeps in an unopened drawer. But one early winter’s day, a widow and her young son approach hum with a gentle request that leads to a joyful miracle. This moving, lyrical tale, gloriously illustrated by P.J. Lynch, has been widely hailed as a true Christmas classic. This beautiful new edition includes a new note from the author.
