Stephanie Fitzgerald’s 5-star Review of “THE CARPENTER AND HIS BRIDE” on Goodreads

If you’re a fan of novels like “The Robe” and “The Greatest Story Ever Told”, this a must-read!

A young girl, who loved to serve God and admire His beautiful creations-
A lonely man, who enjoys creating beautiful things from wood-
Their paths have crossed for fourteen years, and now these two are betrothed to one another. A commitment that to those of the Jewish faith is as binding as marriage itself…Then, with a flash of angel wings, their lives and history itself will forever be altered…
Such a wonderful story of Mary and Joseph’s lives and courtship before that blessed Holy Night. The author did a marvelous job of “fleshing out” the Biblical tale, without marring the original.
A beloved song kept playing in my head as I read this, by the group 4-Him, years ago.
“Why me, I’m just a simple man of trade
Why him, with all the rulers in the world
Why here, inside this stable filled with hay
Why her, she’s just an ordinary girl
Now I’m not one to second guess
What angels have to say,
But this is such a strange way to save the world.”
