I discovered this book several years ago and bought a copy for myself. The journalistic style of the story made it seem so realistic. It spoke to my heart. Since then I have bought copies for all the special girls in my life, most recently my future daughter-in-law. The book itself is the bargain copy and in paperback form, but has held up well. The picture on the front is attractive.
While driving in the car, I heard a chapter read from 'Stepping Heavenward' on Christian radio. The passage read spoke of balancing our study & meditation of the Word with the enjoyment of art & music. We're made for both. It was beautifully written & I fell in love with the book....Went home & ordered it. Even tho it was written so long ago, it is amazingly relevant.
This is my favorite book of all time. I have given this to many people for it is a story that is worth sharing and a book I have read through many times. It is about a young woman and the life she lived written through her journal and some letters. It is so realistic that it seems real and is easy to forget that it is a work of fiction. It is filled with faith, life, death and family the core elements of what day to day life is. Unlike many stories this one move through a large part of her life, there are ups and downs. A book that feels so real it was as if you were peeking into someone's life.
