A Heartwarming Story of the Magic of the Christmas Story
on September 21, 2003
THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE OF JONATHAN TWOMEY is a simple and heartwarming story. The plot is simple enough. Jonathan is lonely and still mourning the loss of his wife and child. The pain of this loss makes it difficult for Jonathan to open up to others. Though many respect his talent as a wood carver, he is mistakenly judged as a miserable and mean spirited person. His life begins to change when a local widow orders a new manger scene and requests that her son watch Jonathan at work since the child hopes to be a woodcarver one day. The boyï¿½s simple goodness as well as the magic of the Christmas story begin to have an effect on Jonathan and he is eventually able to accept the love that the mother and her son wish to offer him. The transformation is gradual and therefore rings as authentic.
Ms. Wojciechowski tells a beautiful story. She weaves her words in a masterful way that will certainly engage a childï¿½s imagination. An as is the case in many stories labeled for children, the book holds universal truths that will touch an adult heart as well.
