The story of the birth of Jesus has been the subject of innumerable works of art, literature and music. But in the past two thousand [years:] of storytelling no one has told the tale from the perspective of the innkeeper's wife. No one until Wayne Stahre put pen to paper to create "Flower, A Story Of The Nativity". With a genuine flair for engaging narrative, author Wayne Stahre combines both fictitious characters (such as Flower herself) with historical figures and retells the Nativity story with a realism that draws upon archaeology, history, and meticulous biblical research. Of special note is how within the context of an original and creative approach, "Flower, A Story Of The Nativity" deals with such implicit and explicit questions as to the identity of the 'Wise Men', the nature of the Star of Bethlehem, the appearances of the angels Gabriel and Michael, the background of the Roman census of Judea, why the God of Israel permitted the murder of children by Herod's forces, why there are differences between the genealogy accounts by Matthew and Luke, why Matthew says Jesus and his family fled to Egypt to escape Herod's slaughter of the innocents, when Luke's account has Jesus being taken to Nazareth after his birth. An entertaining and highly recommend read, "Flower, A Story Of The Nativity" is an informed and deftly written historical adventure novel that would make an exceptionally popular addition to any personal reading list or community library fiction collection.

Thank you very much for your guidance. I was definately unclear about where to post but was pretty sure where I was doing so was not the right place. Is there a way to remove my post from the Lyn Cote area?

thanks again for the help!
