Rhys Bowen is a magnificent story teller with an ability to keep a reader’s attention until she is ready to let them go. In this novella, she tells the story of Eastenders Jack and Maggie who have lost their only child, a little girl, to diphtheria. Their sad Christmas during the Blitz is without most of the holiday foods they had before the war. When their house is bombed, they have nowhere to go, so they go to the wealthy West End, believing they would be safe there. There they find an abandoned little boy, living all alone in a grand house. As the story unfolds, need, hope and good cheer give the three of them, and others they befriend along the way, an unlikely Christmas miracle.
