    Minor Miracles

    The story, in which all characters except Heliane are identified solely by their function, takes place in an unspecified distant realm where joy and laughter have been forbidden by the King. When a stranger arrives bringing happiness to the people he is soon arrested and sentenced to death, but is offered a last-minute reprieve if he can convince the King’s wife, Heliane, to love the King.
