Two thousand years ago in Bethlehem, a young homeless boy named Daniel finds shelter in a stable and witnesses the birth of the Savior. Wanting to present the child with something, he gives the baby his only possession-a silver ring he wears on a piece of twine around his neck. But Daniel's life remains one of living on the fringe of society until, in his darkest and loneliest moment, he again meets the Savior.
This powerful story provides a unique perspective of the birth and death of Jesus through the eyes and heart of a desolate young man. Infused with wonder and awe, this story is one of unconditional love and endless hope.
A Piece of Silver is a gripping story that gives an original and interesting perspective on the birth and death of Jesus. Excellent story telling coupled with engaging and dramatic illustrations will have readers, young and old, turning the pages until they reach the dramatic and promising ending. It is a story of victory that families will enjoy reading over and over again." -Crystal Bowman, best-selling children's author
