by James Caputo

A bit of humor, a bit of romance, a bit of irreverence, a bit of Irish fairy tale. On a foggy Christmas Eve in a pub in Ballydonal, a small remote village that time and place have forgotten, 3 men gather to say farewell to Eileen. A newborn is discovered in the loo. All three men believe the child is theirs and will right their lives. Stories of an assignation with the Virgin Mary, whispers from God, and baptism by Guinness, lead to a resolution for all. But it is through the healing nature of forgiveness, redemption, love, and family, that a true miracle is achieved.
