Six Sentence Sunday

In honor of its pending release, this week’s sentences come from my latest book, Full of Grace. Available on December 17, the novella covers the pregnancy of Mary. In today’s excerpt, Mary and Joseph are traveling to Bethlehem when Mary realizes she’s in labor. As always, I appreciate your comments and thank you for stopping by my blog.

Full of GraceShe had been experiencing similar pressure for the past few days, but this was by far the worst, almost like the pain her doda [aunt] felt when her time of fulfillment came and John was born.

No, no, no, she thinks, her hands on the underside of her belly, as if holding him in.

“Mary, what’s wrong?”

The concern in his voice is unmistakable, as is the apprehension in his eyes. Mary doesn’t have to tell him she’s in labor – he sees it; and with a nervous push towards the donkey, he says, “Let’s find a room for you.”
