"A Symphony in Sand" is the sbook that follows Miller's exceptional "A Requiem for Love." As the previous book was set in a fantasy world, so "A Symphony in Sand" takes place in the same world. Miller retells the wonderful story of Christ's coming, and examines the lives of Mary and Joseph. He emphasizes the spiritual struggle that the biblical couple faced and that is often overlooked.
The maiden Travare is chosen to bear "Earth-Maker's Son," a Deliverer who will free Tarra from the evil tyranny of Slythe, Earth-Maker's sworn enemy. Travare is engaged to Artisan, but he does not believe her story. Slythe plants seeds of suspicion into Artisan's mind: Is Travare pure, was she raped, or is she a promiscuous harlot? Slythe also causes Travare to doubt her own senses: "I believe you, or at least I want too. Poor, naive girl! Is it not possible that someone stole to your bed and drugged you with strange concoctions: a soldier from the nearby garison, perhaps"...
My wife and I read this out loud to each other every Christmas season - one chapter a day before work. It powerfully sets our mindset and enriches the Christmas love story many times over. We cry together. It is beautiful, and peerless. When the pastor talks about the character of Mary or Joseph, their struggles, their culture - it just falls short of what this book does!
A+ author. If you don't like the book, I will purchase it from you that's how much I like this author. He's so close to Lewis in his allegory writings.
