Th e title is captivating, inviting oneto look inside.

I gave this book to a study group who center on Mary. 'So often the desire for more knowledge of Jesus and Mary's home life during His growing up years has been spoken to . 'the more we know about a person, the more ones personal relationship is fostered. Book is nicely illustrated and appreciated the cost. Pece, Joan Gerhards
