He loved and trained  them, worked beside them as they carried supplies, built bridges, and transported the sick through WW1 in Burma, and especially mourned Bandoola’s death as an old friend. ELEPHANT COMPANY  is an inspirational war epic; part history, part wildlife adventure, and part biography – all of it poignant and fascinating.

Published: Scribner Book Company - November 13th, 2012

Mary’s first-person account of watching her son grow into the man known as Jesus.  She retells her story years after the crucifixion, when the disciples, who are trying to write the Gospels, want to hear more than Mary’s actual version of events. Mary tells some of  most well-known stories including one about which she is a little skeptical (and scared) -  turning water to wine — while nostalgically telling them about the simpler days of being a mother, back when her son wasn’t The Son.

A book for mothers, a book for readers who love Toibin’s writing, and a thought provoking tale, perfect for book groups.
