Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
When I picked up this novella, I was expecting a traditional, reflective story about the birth of Christ. What I got was a mix of intrigue, adventure and romance that's surprisingly light on Scripture quotes.

In the forward, author Trudy J. Morgan-Cole said she sought to portray the chaos and cruelty of the era's royal courts. She succeeded admirably. The storyline is rife with political betrayal and double-cross. It's interesting reading, especially since a good portion of it is based on historical fact.

The love story was a bit far-fetched and I felt the ending was a bit rushed. Actually, I think the book could have been a little longer; it's a big plot crammed into a mere 128 pages.

Overall though, I quite enjoyed this rather unconventional Nativity tale.

This is a wonderful book. It gives the reader insight into the times of Christ. I also like the secrets of living in a palace life. The author always has a good read for the reader.

This story really gives insight into what was happening in the time of Herod and the journey that brought the kings to Bethlehem. I would highly reccommend this book!
