An unusual and unique christmas short story. A young boy grows up mistreated and unloved by all except his adopted mother. When she dies he finds it hard to hold out for hope that he will be loved again or even needed.

We know and love the Christmas story-light comes to dispel dark, purity comes to stomp corruption. It's beautiful. It's perfect proof of an eternal truth and light. . . . This is not the usual story. This is the tale of a mute boy who is born and abandoned in the shadows of life. He carries with him two things-his dead mother's shawl and her promise that someday he will find a king who will give him a voice. Like Reuben in The Promise, may you sing of Light, even when no one else can hear.
