Regarding the human nature of our Lord, I think Jesus' first smile was during the Nativity, when He saw our Virgin Mary's smiling and caring face (He stopped crying and started smiling) and some of Jesus' first laughs were when St. Joseph was playing with Him.

It was a very intriguing story and I highly recommend it. It takes place in Medieval times so is not dated even though it is old.

I haven't heard about that novel, Jeanne, but seems interesting
