I am a fan of Ms. Lewis and have read all of her books but this book was a real disappointment to me. It was so slow I couldn't keep my place when I picked up the book again. It is not a book you can't wait to pick up again. Just like everything, I know Ms. Lewis can't have 100% great and just because I didn't love it doesn't mean some won't love it. I do look forward to the 2nd book and hope for more umph in the story line.
This book is really good. It will touch you and make you want to read God's word a lot greater. The only drawback to the story is that Nellie doesn't get saved. I hope she will in the next book though, but this one is worth the read!
