Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0980045134, Hardcover)Joseph, the third installment to the Cradle To Cross Trilogy (Winner of Compilations and Anthologies from Independent Publishers) is packed with suspense, murder, romance and more from the tale of an unexpected father, to say the least. Joseph, the Father's Journey completes Bible actor Mac McConnell's Christmas to Easter trilogy, joining Hadad and Bozra. Betrothed and yet betrayed. "Joseph, I'm pregnant and the child is not yours. " The words that ring in his ears all his waking hours. So what does he say? "Where I come from this stinks worse than pigs. In fact where I come from I have the right, every right to drag her before the council and recommend she be stoned - to death." But, who am I fooling? I love her, I would never…, but soon everyone will know. She's showing already. Rumors will be all over town. I will be the laughing stock. First she says yes, then she leaves for three months and now I'm supposed to believe the wildest story of all. His heart is broken, yet aches for his first love. Only a miracle could save him - them. It didn't seem like anything from God when the Centurion brought the decree that ordered Joseph on a dangerous journey to Bethlehem. Should he take Mary? From cradle to cross, these Journey's are much more than Christmastime tales, Joseph completes the series of three men touched and changed for all eternity by the baby, the boy, the man Yeshua. Perhaps the most overlooked and yet most famous father of all times gets shocking news that changes the course of history and blast Joseph's beliefs. He knows this child is not his. Can't be. He hasn't touched her, thought about it, but he hasn't, not in that way. Even if it was within the law for a betrothed couple to come together, it still was outside of God's will. Mary should be a blushing bride, not the town's gossip. Joe's reaction may surprise you, maybe not. And that is just the beginning. The law allows him to turn her in and have her stoned. He considers his options. She's beginning to show. Everyone will know. He will be the laughing stock unless he divorces her, turning his back on the shame. But - he loves her. His heart is broken, but aches to hold her and make everything all right again. Only a miracle could save him, them. It didn't seem like anything from God when the Roman brought the decree that ordered Joseph on a dangerous journey to Bethlehem. Should he take Mary?
