Publisher's Summary

Avram has spent his life raising sheep in the hills around his native Bethlehem. Old age finds him cynical, peculiar, and perhaps dangerous. After Avram and his mute wife Yael reluctantly accept responsibility for an unwanted child, the girl’s charming innocence endears her to the couple. When Channah is a young teen, her stepfather unexpectedly appears and demands custody, taking her away to an arranged marriage. The young woman hopes for a kind husband, cherishing the dream of someday having her own child to love. Meanwhile, an old friend persuades Avram to investigate rumors of a miraculous healer. What the old shepherd discovers challenges everything he has ever believed.

Choppy writing but with heart

I can tell the authors poured their hearts into the storyline. It was because of that that I finished it. The narrator is flat with character changes being almost humorous. She didn’t ruin it but it wasn’t an easy listen.

A great biblical fiction

the customs are intriguing! I was hoping the shepherd woman ended up with somebody else but tis real life. The biblical accounts seen or heard through these characters was excellent. The pace is easy going but its great story telling.
