Trees Kneel

Originally published in 1951, The Trees Kneel At Christmas is a timeless miracle story, laid in Brooklyn. It begins on the night before Christmas Eve in the Shehadi's flat, where Grandmother is telling a story to seven-year-old Afity and Hanna her five year-old brother. After Gradnmother expalins why the trees in Lebanon kneel at Christmas, Afity and Hanna hope to witness a similar miracle in Brooklyn's Prosspect Park. Afity and Hanna, like all the children of whom Mrs. Lovelace writes, are completely real.
