Hi! My name is Titus. I am the main character in Faith’s new book, Savior, Like a Shepherd. Today, I’d like to tell you a bit about myself. My author thought this was going to be a character interview, but I don’t like interviews. I’m more of the type who just likes to talk unstructured. First, I’ll let Faith tell you a little bit about the book, herself, and her giveaway. You’ll definitely want to check out the giveaway.
About the Book
The ground shook and a rumble sounded through the air as the train squealed to a stop. Maybe, just maybe, I could carry someone’s bags without the porter taking notice. And then there was the even bigger maybe: Maybe I could get enough money to at least buy a crust of bread for Trevor and Tabitha to share.
I hid behind the boxes in the freight yard and kept one eye on the porter, and the other on the second class passenger car. The porter had his attention on the first class car, so I slipped into the gathering crowd.
Titus Hine has always taken care of others. First in protecting his brother and sister from the men his mother entertained. Even more so after her death, when the townspeople refused to help the orphans of a town prostitute. He’s been protector and provider, despite the hardships. He’s learned that no one will help, no one cares and if he wants to survive he’ll have to rely on his own strength not just for himself but his family as well.
Then a stranger shows him the kindness and help no one else seems willing to. Between her kindness and the lecture she gives the Christian Leaders, Titus’s life takes an unexpected turn for the better. With help and provision from the local believers things should be easier, his burdens are lifted. So why does it feel like life is spinning out of control?
Can Titus learn that while man may fail him there is One who will never fail? Can he learn to allow God to be the Shepherd of his life and lead him? Or will life continue to push him every which way?
Note: 50% of my income from this series will go to the World Orphans organization.

Me again. Faith did give me a few guidelines on what to talk about. I’ll try to stick to them.
As I said, my name is Titus Hine. When the story starts out, it’s a few months after my mother’s death and I am twelve years old. I’m old enough and strong enough for a job, but no one will hire me because I am illegitimate. If it were just me I had to worry about, I wouldn’t worry at all. But I have to take care of my brother and sister, too.
I love my brother and sister and would do anything I need to for them to survive. I try to draw the line at stealing, though. My ma raised me with some morals. I’m just thankful the passengers on the train don’t know what I am so I can get some money from them when I can slip into the crowd without the porter noticing.
Faith said you all might want to know what my dreams are. They’re pretty simple. A comfortable job that makes enough to pay for a shanty or anything that has a roof on it so I can provide a simple living for Trevor and Tabitha. That’s the only dream I really have.
My time’s up. If Faith will let me, I’ll stop by in the comments if you have any questions. In the meantime, you can check out the other posts on the tour.
