The Star in the East by John Adcox and illustrated by Carol Bales from The Story Plant Publishing. Christmas is a season of secrets and miracles. It's also a season of mystery. Throughout their married lives, baseball star Gaspar Bethlen's wife gave him a lovingly crafted mystery every year for Christmas. Solving the clues led him to his present, but the mysteries themselves were the true gift.
Now, Beth has died, leaving Gasper a wreck of a man. But Beth left behind a clue, the beginning of one final Christmas mystery, and it's much more than either of them expected. The heartbroken man follows a coded message that leads him to an antiquarian bookstore, where he receives an old book the next clue. Soon, Gaspar is caught up in a globetrotting adventure.
Facing one danger and desperate escape after another, he races to unravel a puzzle involving a priceless jewel, ancient star maps, a noble bloodline, and an astonishing secret that dates all the way back to the very first Christmas. The Star in the East is a winter tale of ancient mystery, secrets, and puzzles, and of breathtaking action and adventure. It's also a heart-shattering story of faith, love, and healing the true Christmas miracle.
My Opinion: This book is full of adventure, imagination, love, and suspense, and I enjoyed it as some books can wonder when they will pick up and be less boring this one did not take long to get into.
