Review Text

Gabriel is an apprentice to a cruel and bad-tempered stonemason when a group of travelling players performing Mystery plays comes to town. Never having seen a play before he believes it absolutely, revering the actor playing God, while being terrified of the Devil. When 'God' tells him he wants him to be an angel he leaves his stonemason and goes with the players, eventually believing he is performing miracles. (10 yrs +) (Kirkus UK)show more
