I really enjoyed this book. It is a fictional story about Mary and Joseph, what they might have felt and thought before and during Jesus's birth. It pictures them in a very human light, as if they were just like us. That's not how we tend to view them. I thought it was a wonderful book.

This is a wonderful adaptation on the story of jospeh and mary, any one interested in jesus's life should read this book. i was awed by the story and really have a more realistic understanding of the way the life of christ could possibly have begun on earth, a wonderful story and a wonderful feeling after reading the story, it is short and sweet, but worth the time it takes to read it. you must read this one, and if you can find this book you must keep the book!it is really not easy to get anymore! this copy i have is old yellow and not in great shape, but it is complete readable and still has the covers. this will be a hard one to part with, but i am willing to let someone else enjoy the pleasure of at least reading this book.its worth it no matter how the shape of the book is!!!! if the book is not acceptable i will replace with another book on my list of choices!

The story of Mary and Joseph told as a the love story that it is. What would it be like to be a young girl living at that time and find yourself 'with child'? This tender story gives insights into the culture and practices of the time while telling the story in a fashion that is true to the characters we read about in the Bible.

In Two From Galilee, Marjorie Holmes tells the story of two real people whose lives were touched by God: the 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 an an awesome responsibiligy. 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, gripping, emotional novel of divine love.

Marjorie Holmes's skillful writing takes these two wonderful characters off the calendars and Christmas cards and makes them genuine human beings with whom people can identify. Mary is portrayed as a lovely young woman just emerged from girlhood, and Joseph as a smitten, hardworking carpenter - both of them deeply in love, joyously betrothed, and preparing for their wedding and new home. Holmes treats the nativity reverently, without deviating from the biblical account, but makes it live for readers as the intense love story it must have been.
