'In this moment, I felt strangely out of place, as though suddenly waking to find myself in someone else's home. I sensed that I had become lost and needed to find my way back, and as I wondered whether love really could take me there, I glimpsed something. Out of the corner of my consciousness flashed a tiny ray of hope. In this ray was an invitation to be different. I never forgot it. And when the time was right, I caught myself beginning to follow it.' A Dove Flies charts a young woman's amazing personal and spiritual journey through atheism and Islam to Christianity, and the discovery of abundance after a life spent in lack. It includes personal struggles, such as father loss, an eating disorder, and profound despair; and personal victories, including the recovery of self-worth, love, and faith. Combining reasoned argument with the compelling touch of personal testimony, infused with raw emotion and trenchant honesty, this book offers a fresh and insightful look at Christian faith and the universal search for meaning. "This is a remarkable story of faith and commitment, beautifully written by a young woman of courage and humility. The depth of her faith will inspire readers." -William J. Tobin, Anchorage, Alaska "Ele Fay is a brilliant writer and thinker. Her path from Islam to Christianity, imbued with both discernment and heartache, inspires even as it gives witness to one of the most significant crucibles of the postmodern age." -Jennifer Ferch, Vice President, NBC Camps "A Dove Flies contributes to an urgent contemporary narrative about faith and demonstrates striking courage and integrity of both word and deed. Suffering is not a prerequisite of religious conviction, but onecannot help but be deeply moved by Ele's story." -Toby Wilkinson, artist
