Believers gather on a cold Christmas Eve for dinner and a midnight church service, observed by Chester, the lonely mouse who lives in the beautiful, old church in Potter's Corners. Noisy visitors and a colorful tree ornament shaped like a beautiful lady mouse overwhelm him with sadness.

But in that same darkness lurks Slither, the snake, waiting for him... What is in store for Chester if he is courageous? Read this charming tale of love, longing, and hope as experienced by the smallest of creatures to see if Christmas Eve is still a time for miracles.
