The Christmas Eve Visitor: A Saint Maggie Short Story
Sometimes miracles happen when you expect them least but need them most.
It is Christmas Eve of 1863. As a snow storm howls outside, Maggie and her family care for their three youngest members, all of whom are seriously ill.
A knock at the door brings an unanticipated interruption in the form of an odd little peddler. Despite her anxiety over the children, Maggie invites the stranger in and feeds him supper, an act of kindness that has an impact on her entire family.
