Summary (From the publisher):

A star falls from the winter sky into a wood, and there two shepherds find a strange infant. Though exquisitely beautiful of face and form, the Star-Child turns out to be a cruel and selfish boy. One day he taunts a poor beggar-woman who, to his horror, then claims to be his mother.
