What was it REALLY like?

What was Mary really like?

Ask Rivka the gossip.
She’ll happily tell you, even if she doesn’t know.

Poor Zechariah! Fifty years old, his wife is expecting, and a pregnant teenager has moved in. How does he get a word in edgewise? He doesn’t. That’s what you get for arguing with an angel.
What would a childless old priest do if an angel promised him a baby? How would a girl react to a humiliating role in history’s greatest miracle? What was the world really like then? How could such a story possibly be true?
All we know about Jesus’ birth and childhood is in four chapters of the Bible—chapters containing such unusual events and characters that they read like a fairy tale. But perhaps the truth may become easier to believe by seeing how these events could actually fit together with recorded history.

So take Sari, the feisty donkey, who has no problem dispatching troublemakers with a swift kick. Toss in some real tyrants and invented thieves. Let uninvited angels stir it up, and get ready for excitement!

The Christmas story like you’ve never read it before….
For sample snippets from the story,




  1. Amazon? How about Peter and his family?


    • It will be on Amazon, Barnes & Noble,, etc., but the files only went to the printer a couple of days ago. That didn’t stop me from ordering fifty already. Hopefully they will arrive within the next couple of weeks, but we’ll see.
      Oh, yes,, too. I really need to get Paypal up and running.

      Peter might have to wait. I’m working on a whodunit.
