Old Men Don't Walk to Egypt (Saint Joseph) (Friends in High Places Book 2)
by Corinna Turner Publish: Jun 17, 2021Christian FictionTeen & Young AdultBiographies & Memoirs
FRIENDS, POPULARITY, BOYFRIEND, CHECK.
Katie has everything she thinks she wants—friends, popularity, and a gorgeous athletic older boyfriend. But the more time she spends with Shaun, the more miserable she feels.
When freaky Daniel suggests Saint Joseph for her research project, her supposedly perfect life spirals out of control. Will the carpenter from Nazareth destroy everything she thinks matters—or give her even the things she didn’t know she wanted?
Old Men Don’t Walk to Egypt is the second book in the Friends in High Places series, but can be read on its own.
“Despite being beyond blessed as a Dominican Sister of Saint Joseph to be under his patronage, I always struggled most of all in getting to know St Joseph as a flesh-and-blood person. Seeing him through Katie's eyes has had a beautiful and unexpected impact on my own relationship with him and—finally—I've found a friend and spiritual father in St Joseph!”
- Sr. M. Catherine Bloom, OP
