Elisabet ran after a lamb 50 years ago and found herself travelling to Palestine, and back through 2000 years to meet the Holy Family. In present-day Norway, Joachim has an advent calendar, and hidden in each window is a part of Elisabet's story, through which we learn what happened to her.
A startlingly original presentation of the nativity story, woven into an enthralling and mysterious novel, this is a book that opens eyes and minds to the wonder and mystery of Christmas, and transcends all barriers to reach adults and children, believers and non-believers alike. The qualities of wonder and enquiry that readers loved in SOPHIE'S World are as strong as ever in this beautiful new Jostein Gardner book.
