About The Book

A Christmas short story set as a European folk tale. A nagging wife is horrified when her carpenter husband fixes a neighbor’s roof instead of going to church on Christmas Eve. Who is right?

“...What an unhappy woman she was, she finally managed to stammer, to have such a husband! True, he was usually quiet and industrious, but he had simply no religion! Just no religion at all! And if she were to live to be a hundred, she would never forget that night!

“Not a single ‘Our Father’ did he say, nor did he welcome the Christ Child with so much as a single short prayer! What an end such a man will come to! Even this morning, people are going from house to house telling each other that they have never heard anyone curse as much as this husband of mine on Holy Night! You must have heard it yourself, Your Reverence, after Midnight Mass! I was shivering in my soul!”
