The Shepherd's Prayer: A Christmas Novel
Available from Amazon
I received this book in the mail and it has a beautiful cover. The story is about a young man whose mother saved him from the Massacre of the Holy Innocents and lost her own life in doing so. He was found by a merchant who brought him home and adopted him, raising him as one of his own sons. In spite of efforts to find the rest of his family his origins remain mysterious. Finally, the young man journeys to Bethlehem to discover what happened and where he came from.
I won't give too much away except to say that this is a wonderful story, completely lacking in misplaced sentimentality. A good book for a young man that gives a slighty different perspective on the Christmas miracle.
