The Birth of Samuel – Taryn Frazier




The Birth of Samuel



‘The Birth of Samuel’ is a loose, modern re-telling of the story from the Book of Samuel. In it, a doctor with a god complex must grapple with the truth that many of us resist: that we are not God. Sometimes this realization can occur only with a breaking or shattering of our plans and expectations.



Taryn Rose Frazier writes and raises children with her husband in Georgia, USA.
