The Shepherd Who Couldn't See The Wood For The Trees

By Alick Rowe.

It's zero year AD in the hills around Bethlehem where the grouchy workaholic shepherd Joel manages to miss the entire Nativity show through single-minded devotion to his flock.

His attractive young wife Miriam and her beady mother Ruth have an altogether more interesting experience entertaining Three Wise Men.

When Joel brings home his tiny flock, the morning after, his suspicions are aroused.
