MEADVILLE, Pa., May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "Sarina": a profound historical-fiction novel about a young woman who befriends the Christ during his time on earth. "Sarina" is the creation of published author Beverly Forgus, a writer, playwright, poet, and songwriter, who currently leads the prayer ministry in League City, Texas, with her husband, and enjoys spending her retirement writing full-time.
Forgus writes through her character's musings on the Christ: "A few hours into our conversation about Jerusalem, Jesus wanted to walk around down by the river bend, alone. It was then when Stephen told me much about this man who seemed very kind and very genuine, yet mysterious—very much to himself.
'He finds time in every day to be alone for a while. God is an important part of his life. He likes to spend time talking to Him,' said Stephen as we watched Jesus walk away. 'Over the years, our friendship has become so strong that he often shares with me things that are in his heart. He feels a certain strength growing inside him, and he is not absolutely sure yet what it means. But he knows that he will know when the time is right.'
To know—what a gift. Mother had a way of knowing when something was right and it had a lot to do with God. Those conversations she had with Him must be what gave her the peace she had at the end. No wonder I was so drawn to Jesus. He was a lot like my mother!"
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Beverly Forgus's new book is a heart-wrenching and entirely absorbing tale that brings to life the Israel of biblical times and the legendary characters that populate it.
Through Sarina's introspective and utterly believable human nature, the reader will encounter, almost firsthand, a struggle of trust, faith, and loyalty in the face of persecution, and an innocent awe of Jesus' life-changing miracles.
