Doris Bewernitz

The Wonder of a Winter Night

Christmas Stories

Doris Bewernitz sets out for the manger. Slip into the well-known figures with her: Angel Gabriel, Mary and Josef, the child and the donkey. But also into further figures like the wren, the dog, innkeeper Monides or Death. Fear, doubts, faith, trust, longing, expectation, hope, vulnerability, light or a new beginning: each of them experiences the child's birth in a different way. Together, all of these perspectives merge to marvel at the wonder of the Holy Night in a true-to-life, surprising and authentic way.

  • These stories give a voice to the figures at the manger and tell about their wonder of the Holy Night
  • Mary, Elisabeth, Jaira, Jachelia, Ramira and Rachel: above all, female figures who have never been heard have their say
  • Masterfully illustrated by Barbara Trapp
