This is a send-off (I do not know if I am using the right word here) of the story of Samson found in the Book of Judges in the Bible. For those of you who are not familiar with the story, an Angel appears to Samson's mother, giving her a few restrictions on her diet, saying that she should not drink wine or strong drink or eat "unclean" food. She would have a son and he will become a Nazirite, meaning "dedicated to the LORD" and he should also stay away from strong drink and wine and "unclean" food.

For the most part I liked it, but David Maine uses some language that for "sensitive" readers, for lack of a better word/term, like me, found a bit harsh. Language that would appear in steamier roances. But I liked some of the satire that Maine included that wasn't a part of the story as it appeared in the Bible.
