The Innkeeper's Wife

(1958)
A Novella by

 
Speaking of his Christmas story originally published in "The American Weekly" magazine in December 1958, A. J. Cronin explained: "It came to me very strongly that to achieve the highest and most profoundly touching results, I should go back to the first Christmas of all and create a vivid reconstruction of the effects of the birth of the Child upon certain characters, notably the wife of the innkeeper where no room was found for Mary and Joseph. The title of the story would be "The Innkeeper's Wife," for she, as I imagine her, is the central human character - a good and tender-hearted woman, childless herself, and bullied by an assertive and miserly husband."
