I truly enjoyed this historical fiction book. It's based on the true story of John Bunyon who wrote "Pilgrim's Progress." I appreciated all of the history in this book, even though I did know about John Bunyon's story it was truly an experience to read about his wife's experience while John was going through everything he went through. It was news to me about his children, especially that he had a blind daughter. I did not know that so there were things in this book that really completes his story and his life. I read the book in every spare moment I had, it kept my interest and I just had a hard time putting it down. You will enjoy this book.
