Little Leah is very concerned about the couple who come seeking a room at her father's inn. The woman is about to have a baby - and there is nowhere for them to stay except the stable. Here is a heartwarming retelling of the traditional Nativity story. It remains faithful to the gospel accounts but allows us to view them through the eyes of a child. In a deft and utterly convincing conclusion, the reader is drawn into Leah's belief that the tiny baby in her arms is in fact holding her with unshakeable love.
