Hear Me Alone
The daring author ofA Man Who is Not a Manhas challenged the conventional once again with his wonderfully original second novel,Hear Me Alone.
When Epher returns to Nazareth, he meets his childhood sweetheart, Bellewa Miriam, who reveals she has been promised for marriage to the woodwork merchant, old man Joseph, and has been visited by an angel, who informed her that she would conceive that night.
Many years later, when the son of Bellewa Miriam had come and gone, Epher writes a letter to his patron and friend, Theophilus, telling him what happened on the night he met Bellewa Miriam, recounting the consequences suffered as a result of this meeting, which he hopes will be included in the bible.
Written as a re-imagining of the Nativity Story,Hear Me Aloneoffers an imaginative alternative to the story of the conception and birth of Jesus Christ.
