    Peter and Celeste choose to travel as one on the lifelong journey to the King's City. They are blissfully in love and bound to each other by the Cords of Commitment. Shortly after visiting the Moon of Honey they discover that the journey proves much more difficult than they expected. When they find themselves laboring through the Swamp of Selfishness, crossing the dismal Plains of Distance, and nearly becoming separated by the River of Unfaithfulness, their love for each other and for the King is challenged. They must choose whether to continue on together, not knowing if they can be warmed again by the Kindling of Affection, or visit the Valley of Cut Cords to journey alone once more.

    Inspired by the timeless classic Pilgrim's Progress, Annie Wald's Walk with Me exposes the journey of marriage as the epic passage that it is and the refining process it can become.

    My Review:

    A modern twist on an old classic, Walk With Me is Pilgrim's Progress re-imagined for couples. While I am not a fan of old favorites being changed, Wald paints a completely different story that only serves to add to Bunyan's work. An allegory, the writing doesn't flow like a normal novel would. Peter and Celeste are a couple that have every good intention in the world - but good intentions and reality are never the same thing.

    For me, what makes the book so fascinating and enchanting, is how Wald makes the connection between marriage and the Christian life. It is creative, imaginative, and filled with timeless truths. Marriage is a journey, not a destination. We can't "arrive" and proclaim ourselves accomplished. The language of this novel reads easily despite the style, and I highly recommend it to anyone; married or not. Very insightful and a resource that goes a long way in understanding marriage.

    This book was provided by the publisher for free in exchange for an honest review.

    I was warned that the book Walk with Me was the journey of a married couple, but as a single person, I found it very insightful. I could identify many similar experiences from my own life and from the observation of couples around me. As well as walking with a significant other, we want to walk with God and the challenge is to stay close.

    The temptation is to settle for the mediocre - little rooms with a tiny view of the Holy City when we can be walking free on the way there. That's one image I will always remember from the story. The other image is the very difficult challenge it was to step on the 'bridge of repentance'.

    Another recommendation - I couldn't put it down until I had finished reading. Something I normally reserve for detective novels!

    A wonderful allegory. Would put in my top 3 for all time. This book puts me at a loss for words. Every marriage can grow by reading it. Thought provoking and an enjoyable read. A fun adventure.

    Annie Wald in her new book, "Walk With Me" published by River North Fiction Division of Moody Publishers gives us Pilgrim's Progress for Married Couples.

    From the Back Cover: Journey of faith_taken together

    Peter and Celeste choose to travel as one on the lifelong journey to the King's City but it proves much more difficult than they expected, and their love for each other and for the King is challenged. They must choose whether to continue on together, not knowing if they can be warmed again by the Kindling of Affection, or visit the Valley of Cut Cords to journey alone once more.

    Inspired by the timeless classic Pilgrim's Progress, Annie Wald's Walk with Me exposes the journey of marriage as the epic passage that it is and the refining process it can become.

    Let's face it being married is not easy. It is a daily experience filled with all kinds of new experiences, some good, some not so good and being married does not come with an owner's manual. Annie Wald has taken "Pilgrim's Progress" and re-imagined it as an allegory for the walk that married couples take. "Walk With Me" is a beautiful story of Peter and Celeste and their journey to the King's City. This is a journey they take until death parts them and along the way they encounter all kinds of challenges. In between this couple also finds periods of rest, times of refreshing, relaxation, and a rekindling of the old flame. Let me assure you that this is an exciting book. "Walk With Me" is a wonderful romance. If you are married then this book is for you. If you are thinking of getting married then this book is for you. If you have friends that are getting married then give this book as a gift. If you have friends that are married then give this book as a gift. It is that good. You will be blessed and they will thank you for it. I liked this book and recommend it highly!
