A Gift for a Mouse blurb
What if you could see things with a whole new set of eyes? What if you could do that with The Last Supper? Follow the adventures of a little mouse who is present at the famous meal and witnesses everything that happens. He has no idea who the people are or the significance of their actions and words. All he knows is what he sees and what he experiences.

Excerpt: A Gift For A Mouse

“Oh, it is hard to describe,” he replied. “At times, his laughter would fill my entire heart. At other times, his sorrow would break it. He was a man with deep emotions. I have never again encountered such intense emotions. I loved to see a twinkle in his eye as he told a joke that made everyone laugh.

“His friends were a mixed bunch. Listening to them talk, you could tell they were from various areas of the kingdom. From what I heard, a few were fishermen and others used to work for the government. It seemed all of them gave up their jobs just to hang out with this one man. I thought that was a little strange, but what was I to say about these creatures? I was there for the food.

The Nightingale in the Garden blurb:
Continue the tale from A Gift for a Mouse when Thomas sneaks to the Garden of Gethsemane to find out the rest of the story. He learns from the very bird that witnesses the strangest events that fateful night. He finds out how the man his grandfather had met really was betrayed and taken to be killed. The story was more than a story. It was a life changing experience for a small bird

Excerpt from A Nightingale in the Garden:

“Whenever he prayed, it was like nothing you had ever heard. Many think that our music is beautiful, but his words surpassed them all. It was not that he spoke fancy words like you hear others do. It was more as if he was speaking to someone dear to him and every word was sincere and true. There was no pretending. It was so real.

“But that night, his words were different. They were still beautiful, but they were so full of sadness. He kept saying that if things could be done differently, please let it be so. He was asking if whatever was about to happen could be avoided if at all possible. But you just knew listening to him that he knew it would happen anyway.
