"An unforgettably poignant original Christmas story of sacrificial hope that may enable readers from nine to ninety to experience Christmas with newfound tenderness. Release your imagination and discover what could have ultimately happened to the beloved Little Drummer Boy and the exquisite gifts the Wise Men left for baby Jesus."

"Marci Alborghetti has written a children's story which will be a Christmas favorite for years to come. The Miracle of the Myrrh is a sensitive tale showing us the blessings we receive when we generously offer our gifts to meet another's needs. I can picture myself reading this to a child every Christmas season."
