Love this book. I first read this book when I was young and homeschooled. I think I was in 5th grade. I liked it then, but I think I got more out of it as an adult. I love the older style of writing, but it’s not really the easiest for me to read. I frequently got confused by the unique grammar Hurnard uses as she writes.
But the overall story was true to any woman’s, or human’s heart. We tend to look to the mountains of possibilities and grow desperate for a means to our greatest dreams. And truly, we are all held captive by our own shortcomings and sin until the King sets us free.
It was so refreshing for my soul to read, to simply revel in allegorical truth. If you’re looking for simple, truthful refreshment, pick this book up!
