Publisher Comments:

Here from Marjorie Holines, one of the most  beloved authors of our day, is the extraordinary  bestselling novel that tells the story of Mary and  Joseph as it has never been told before--the greatest  love story of all.

This is the  story of two real people whose lives were touched by  God: two people chosen by God to provide an earthly  home for His Son. Here are Mary and Joseph-a  teenage girl and a young carpenter-alone, frightened,  in love, faced with family conflict, a hostile  world and an awesome responsibility. It is a story  for young and old alike; for everyone who finds the  Christmas tale a source of timeless beauty and  wonder, a compassionate, emotional novel of divine  love

Sheila Deeth, May 3, 2013 (view all comments by Sheila Deeth)
Once upon a time in real history a real child was born who changed the world. Marjorie Holme’s Two From Galilee imagines the story of that child’s parents, Mary and Joseph, in their small town of Nazareth in Galilee. The novel was published in the 1970s and the research may not be entirely up to date, but it’s close enough. Families dream of great futures for their children, love intervenes, and unplanned pregnancies are as hard a fate to cope with then as now. But this pregnancy has more than the usual cause behind it, and the author blends a well-drawn evocative vision of time and place with nicely imagined mystery and deep faith. Following the road from Bethlehem to Nazareth and back, working in the fields, toiling with wood, rebelling against Roman rule, and more, these characters live real lives in real places and eventually place their trust in a very real God. For all that the reader must know the end of the tale, this novel’s a thoroughly enjoyable read, its details enthralling as a well-told historical romance, and its plot pleasingly different even as it follows a well-trodden path. If you’ve ever wanted to imagine how Mary felt, or even her mother, this is the book for you.
