A Christmas Story

by M. P. Ceran

Ozymandias, a novella easily read in one sitting, has all the hallmarks of becoming an instant classic. Written in a style reminiscent of ‘Gift of the Magi’, and ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’, the reader is privy to an inspirational and beautifully told story of love, faith, friendship, and miracles, sure to warm the heart…
Ozymandias, which literally translates to “king of kings,” was the name given to Ramesses the Great, ruler of Egypt. It has been used in the telling of this Nativity based story, of two couples brought together by circumstances beyond their control on a recent Christmas Eve in the desert-like surroundings of the American southwest. A combination of fate and faith has joined them, but neither couple could ever have imagined the wonders that await them this night. Guided unwittingly by the ‘stars’ themselves, theirs will be an evening full of wonderment, laughter, tragedy, tears, and unbridled joy at the simple celebration of life itself. Just as their counterparts from two millennia ago were on a journey to bring a new and very different “King of kings” into the world, José and Maria are on a miracle filledmiracle-filled quest that will ultimately change the course of history.
