While the hero is not especially engaging, he is certainly endearing. Good, simple, short story about the birth of Jesus and the miracles that ensue.

I usually like Burnett, but I didn't care for this book at all. It adds a fictional element to a Biblical account, and that isn't acceptable to me.

Frances Hodgson Burnett's Christmas story. It's a perfectly fine addition to any set of Christmas stories, but the only part of it that really stands out as FHB is the writing. The plot is the same as many of the original Christmas stories one sees, and the hero is not exceptionally engaging to make up for it.
