I have read this book many times over the years and it has always spoken to my heart. It was time to have another Women's Study and I thought this would make a wonderful resource for our gathering. The allegory is simple, yet profound and we have found many teaching moments through its story. I highly recommend it.
When I was in my mid twenties I read this book and it's sequel Mountains of Spices. It was great in helping me understand who I was and what my roll is in the Christian family. I feel that any young adult would benecit from readings these books.
