Susan pretends to be a writer so people don’t ask what her degree is really in, because then she would be forced to listen to endless stories about someone’s long dead cat or asked in mystification why she isn’t currently devoting her life to that end and no other. Instead, she married a clergyman, much to everyone’s astonishment, including her own, and in proper fairytale fashion keeps house for the mysterious gentleman in a far away land, spending most of her time in company with a very short, whimsical person who can almost speak English. She enjoys fantasy, fairy tales, and adventure stories and her writing reflects this quaint affectation. She considers Happy Endings (more or less) a requisite to good literature and sanity, though real stories never, truly end.

Something compelled me to give this book a try, though at first I am reluctant due to its confusing synopsis which don't really tell what the story is about. Anyway, I am glad I did and glad too that I read on though I was tempted to give up in the beginning. I think Susan writes beautifully and the story (reads like a pilgrimage story) to me really gladden my heart and encourages me in my own journey. Thus I am reminded that it is not by my own might, but by His grace that I shall hope to finish this race. Good job! If you like fantasy, whether you are a Christian or not, you will enjoy this book,
