This novelette, fairly well known and often read as a Christmas story, is quite different from any of the rest of Forsyth's novels. It harkens back to an earlier setting and it also represents a style of writing that Forsyth left far behind when he embarked upon his famous novels of spycraft and terrorism. The story could very well have been written by Nevil Shute; it bears all the hallmarks of that great writer of an earlier day. An engaging little piece of work, very well worth the hour or so that it takes to read -- ideally aloud in front of a warm fire on a cold winter evening.
One of my favorite holiday stories, I have enjoyed both reading it and listening to radio broadcast performances during the Christmas season. It has become even more entertaining, since reading of Mr. Forsyth's experiences as a pilot for the RAF before his writing career.
