An old tale told in a new way! Biblically and historically accurate.
Things are good for young Rivkah. Her father's just givenher a lamb to start her own flock, and Shemu'el wants to marry her. The young shepherdess accompanies her father to Bethlehem where, with Mary's help, sheholds her newborn son. But Mary, Joseph and Jesus are soon gone and Herod's soldiers begin killing the children of her village.
Then her intended, Shemu'el, is dragged away into slavery. Divided by fate, united by love, these two young people grow to separate adulthoods, each with their dreams and desires unfulfilled, while the world of Rome and conquest moves inexorably on.
Rivkah eventually marries and raises a family. Life is gooduntil the day she's in Jerusalem for the Passover when three men pass on theirway to crucifixion. As she encounters Jesus a final time, Rivkah makes a life-changing decision and follows to Golgotha. And, when they take him from the cross, this time it's Rivkah who helps Mary hold her son.

Good Book...not so good reader
near the bottom
None comes to mind.
I could not finish listening to it. I really tried but her style is not for me. Got on my nerves.
The main character
The book itself is pretty good. The narrator made the book impossible for me to finish.
History made personal
Moving, fascinating history
Sheen's The Seven Last Words
Each character was uniquely presented. Her verbal expression was outstanding and the singing of the prayers was wonderful.
Christ's passion through a shepherdess' eyes
One of the best audio books I've listened to.
