Tomas, a young native boy, is staying with the reserve nurse while his parents go to check on their cattle. It is a very harsh, cold winter, and although they have promised to return in time for Christmas, they haven't appeared by Christmas Eve.
Tomas falls asleep and dreams of a candle so large that it lights up the night sky. When he awakes he finds that his dream has helped his parents find their way home.
Jean Speare is the author of A Candle for Christmas. She lives in British Columbia.
