Reviewer: Anne K. Edwards


Great read!!! Author Wilma Clark has done herself proud with this tale of a boy in search of his manhood and future. It is several tales with a tale set in the last days before the birth of Jesus and many people's stories are told here. Jahred, son of Ziman-advisor to Prince Imalek of Zobar, has his life changed drastically by the news his father delivers to the court when asked to explain the meaning of a new star. The news sends the prince and several members of his court on a trip to satisfy themselves about Ziman's explanation. Jahred and his friend, Ahmek, accompany them. The boys' adventuresome natures lead to misadventures and more than once some event occurs that casts a pall on their happy curiosity about the world around them. During one of these dark mishaps, Jahred realizes he has an enemy who would see him dead. The author brings the biblical world to life in both background description and character development. When you enter the gate to the city where Jahred lives or those places he visits, you walk at his side to see what he sees, hear what he hears, and learn what he learns. It is with pleasure I highly recommend this book. It is both informative and fun. The reader is aware of a slow building of curiosity and excitement as the tale wends its way from page to page. It is one of those books that belongs to many genres and yet to none. It stands alone as a one-of-a-kind. I happily anticipate Ms. Clark's next book.
