"When Mr. Wescott came home one day wearing his collar and tie it was a sign that some event of unimaginable importance was about to occur. The strangely beautiful story which followed is of the passionate Armenian woman peddler - Mary Christmas - and her dramatic pilgramage from village to village along the coast of Maine. Mr. Wescott's politics, the mingled delight and embarrassment of all his family at the exotic gifts of their strange visitor, the tales of Etchmiadzin - all are told with a humor and insight which are unforced and with a reality which makes them not only a fact but a romance to the reader.
"How she became the symbol to the Wescotts of 'far-off things,' and of an intensity of feeling which but for her they could never have known, is told with unusual beauty and with a voice that speaks to the spirit. "
