I can't find the right words to describe this inspiring book. I am not even devoutly religious but this book helped me through many a difficult time. I have my own copy. Her sequel Mountains of Spices is wonderful too.
I have read this many times and have gotten so much out of it each time. Far better than any allegory I ever read in college. The best love story ever... as the back cover of the book states, "a beautiful allegory dramatizing the yearning of God's children to be led to new heights of love, joy, and victory." I recommend this as a must read for every person of faith. Much-Afraid's journey is worth following along on the path to the High Places. The little mementos that she picks up along the way and what becomes of them is one of my favorite parts...
I read this book at the time of my conversion to Christ and it had a huge impact on my life! I can't remember how many times I've read it or how many copies I have had of this book, but it's in my nightstand right next to my Bible and has helped me and encouraged me more times than I can count!
