In this bestselling Christmas story, a pilot needs a miracle to make it home
It is Christmas Eve, 1957, and there are cozier places to be than the cockpit of a de Havilland Vampire fighter plane. But for the Royal Air Force pilot who has just taken off from West Germany, this single-seat jet is the only way to make it back to England for Christmas morning. His flight plan is simple; the fuel tank is full. In sixty-six minutes, he will be back in Blighty. But then the plane begins to fail. First the compass goes haywire, then the radio dies. Lost and alone above the English coast, the pilot is searching for a landing strip when the fog closes in, signaling certain death. He has given up hope when a second shadow appears--a Mosquito fighter-bomber of World War II vintage. The plane is a "shepherd," guiding the Vampire to a safe landing, and its appearance is a gift from fate, a miracle out of time--but for one lonely pilot, the mystery has just begun. A classic bestseller, beloved by aviation fans (including actor John Travolta, who calls it "one of my favorites because it personalizes the two planes") and general readers alike, "The Shepherd" is a gripping, heartwarming tale for a cold winter's night.

About the Author:

Frederick Forsyth (b. 1938) is an English author of thrillers. Born in Kent, he joined the Royal Air Force in 1956, becoming one of the youngest pilots to ever fly in Her Majesty's service. After two years in the RAF, he began working as a journalist. He later turned his journalism skills to writing fiction, and his first novel, "The Day of the Jackal" (1970), was a great success. Forsyth continued to use real figures and criminal organizations as inspiration, writing popular books like "The Odessa File" (1972) and "The Dogs of War" (1974). His most recent novel is "The Cobra" (2010).
