Overview

When a bad leak ruins the sacristy wall in his father’s church, Jonathan Jefferson Weeks thinks his family’s first Christmas Eve service in Detroit will be ruined, too. But then he and his father find a beautiful tapestry for sale in a secondhand shop. Just the thing to cover the damaged wall and give the church a festive look! But then, amazingly, an old Jewish woman who is visiting the church recognizes the beautiful cloth. It is her discovery that leads to a real miracle on Christmas Eve.

This timely tale of love and generosity between people of different religious faiths is a wonderful showcase for Polacco’s art. It features snowy holiday scenes and a colorful tapestry that is almost a character in itself.
