A holiday short story by Amazon bestselling author Sydney Logan.
It’s Christmas Eve, and Justin Banks is on the hunt for a last-minute gift for his wife, Megan. With the help of a homeless man and the beat of a drum, Justin stumbles upon the one thing Megan has always wanted. The one thing money can’t buy.
It’s amazing what we can hear if we just take a moment and really listen.

For a short story, Little Drummer Boy sure packs a punch. I read the entire thing on the precipice of shedding many tears. Logan sucks us in from the very first word and keeps us hanging on until the very last.
We meet Justin Banks on Christmas Eve as he goes on the hunt for a gift for his wife Megan. From their history, there’s one thing she wants, but is too scared to reach for, but it’s not something you can buy in a shopping mall. As he’s wandering through the snow, he’s distracted by a homeless man who leads him to Luke. A little boy abandoned with just a snare drum and an oil lantern.
From then on in, the reader can guess what is going to happen, but they don’t care because the entire thing is so heartwarming. As a mother, I would certainly want this to happen if, for any reason, I could no longer provide for my children.
A wonderful story that will warm the heart of any reader at this time of year!
