Publisher's Summary

An ancient prophet, witness to unspeakable sorrow, is called to deliver a message of hope. A barren couple learns they will have a child in their old age, a child who will prepare the way for the coming lord. A virgin conceives a miracle. As Zacharias goes about his duties in the temple, a visit from an angel brings unexpected but welcome news. The same angel appears to newly betrothed Mary, and his words will change more than her life. His message will change the world. From Hebron to Bethlehem to Nazareth, travel with the mother of the savior of the world and the people she knew. Become part of the miracle and see the world where Jesus Christ was born. We all know how the story ends, but in Lo, How a Rose, see how it all began.

Nativity story brought to life

Where does Lo, How a Rose rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. The narration was beautiful!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Mary's character. I loved seeing her become real in my mind. Instead of this person I had always heard of. My love and respect for her grew exponentially.

Have you listened to any of Mark Deakins and Emily Rankin ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this was my first book narrated by them. It was brilliant!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The entire story was moving. But I loved when Joseph realized his mistake when he didn't believe Mary had seen an angel and asked Mary for forgiveness and gave her a special gift.

Any additional comments?

I've heard the nativity story my entire life. This book truly brought the characters to life. My love and respect grew for them and they became more real in my eyes. Such a touching story! Everyone needs to own this book for their Christmas collections.

Great Family read

As one that doesn't read very often, I couldn't put it down. Great Christmas Spirit.
