A Star to Follow

By Christopher Freiler

Illustrated by Michael Garman

ISBN: 978-0-9849245-9-2


This is the ancient tale of Melchior the Prince, who reluctantly pursues a war his father believes to be foretold by an omen. In this war, Melchior loses almost everything and resigns himself to a life of duty and sorrow. After many years, a sign from the heavens once again beckons Melchior. Journeying with his comrade Caspar and enemy-turned-friend Balthazar, Melchior risks all and follows the star, knowing not where it will lead him. What he finds in the simple town of Bethlehem is redemption beyond his deepest hopes.
