A Shepherd’s Song is Now Available

Written by Northern Connection’s executive editor, Janice Lane Palko, A Shepherd’s Song tells the tale of Tom Shepherd, a senior physics major at Three Rivers University.  On the last Sunday of November, he arrives at Holy Redeemer church in Perrysville to sell the Christmas season’s hottest toy, So Big Sammy, for three times its price to a desperate buyer to make some cash for a spring break vacation.   When a snafu lands him in the middle of a bone marrow drive for young Christo Davidson who has leukemia, Tom is forced into giving the toy to him.  The media jumps on the story, turning Tom into hero, naming him “The Good Shepherd.”   As a liar and toy scalper, Tom knows he’s unworthy of the honor, but when he meets the boy’s beautiful cousin, Gloria, Tom embellishes his reputation and begins a relationship with her that will lead him to question everything he believes.  On Christmas Eve, Tom faces choices that will not only affect him and Gloria, but also will determine whether Christo lives or dies.

A Shepherd’s Song is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords.  For more information, visit www.thewritinglane.com
