Since he was a boy growing up in Mississippi, Father Tim has lived what he calls the life of the mind. Except for cooking and gardening and washing his dog, he never learned to savor the work of his hands. And then he finds a derelict nativity scene-twenty figures, including a flock of sheep, that have suffered the indignities of time and neglect. Could he give the small company new life? Restore the camels ear, repaint every piece, replace a missing nose on a wise man? You cant teach an old dog new tricks! he reminds himself. Its when he imagines the excitement in Cynthias eyes that he steps up to the plate-and begins a small journey of faith that touches everyone around him. The eighth novel in the bestselling Mitford Yearsseries is a meditation on the best of all presents-the gift of ones heart. Lovingly written and beautifully illustrated, it seeks to restore the true Christmas spirit and give everyone a seat at Mitfords holiday table. This Mitford story presented itself to me, quite unexpectedly, and asked to be told. I hope readers will find it a perfect refuge from the holiday frenzy. -Jan Karon
