About the Book: The Christmas Mystery A startlingly original presentation of the Nativity story, woven into an enthralling and mysterious novel. Fifty years ago a girl called Elisabet Hansen disappeared fromher home in Norway. She ran after a lamb - and found herselftravelling right across Europe to Palestine and back through 2000years to meet the Holy Family in Bethlehem. As she ran she metangels, shepherds, wise men and other biblical characters whojoined her on her pilgrimage; and she heard of many of the thingsthat happened in the world in the last 2000 years. In present-day Norway, a boy called Joachim acquires a strangeold Advent calendar. Hidden in each of the windows is a tiny pieceof paper unfolding Elisabet's story. And it is because of Joachimthat we learn what happened to Elisabet and that she returns toNorway at last.
