Fifteen Nights

The Forgotten Christmas

by Michael Heintz


Book Details



In the shadows of the traditional manger events, a great drama unfolds that is not for the squeamish or the faint of heart. Fifteen Nights goes past Christmas and even beyond “Little Christmas” to explore an oft-overlooked part of the usually festive narrative.

This original story is embedded within the time-honored “Three Kings” legend and covers all the common Christmas themes of birth, love and devotion. It does not overlook, however, that these were also closely and relentlessly pursued by sinister conspiracies, complex betrayals and the most heinous of crimes.

Set in the historical context of the middle-east “at the turning point of time”, the story follows common people from all walks of life in the midst of exceptional events – ordinary players thrown onto an extraordinary stage.

A tale of devotion, courage and hope...
Makes a great gift anytime!

Fifteen Nights retells one of the most powerful and universal stories of all times in an original and unexpected way. Be prepared for the well known tale of the first Noël, with a twist. Actually, lots of twists!
