They arrive at a green island, linked to the mainland by a long arching bridge with a rainbow-like effect. Medieval pilgrims to the Holy Land were told Jesus had been circumcised in the church at Bethlehem.

Even today, when people rehearse something they witnessed a few days earlier. Eight Days of Luke has a lot of the humour one finds in other of Jones' books, especially during the family quarrels. But the humour aside, I found this book to be quite average when compared to others of Jones' works.
