Read from December 26 to 29, 2010

I received this book as a part of the CSFF Blog Tour. When it was first pitched to me, I wasn't sure this was something I would enjoy. However, I saw some great reviews on it and even heard that it was likened to C.S. Lewis's writing. While I've never read the Chronicles of Narnia series *big gasp* I have enjoyed the movies. I'm so thankful I gave this book a chance!!

There is an incredible journey taking place when a marital spat occurs. Joran packs up his wife and sends her off to see family. It might possibly be the last he sees of her. Finding out that she never arrived at the home of her parents, Joran sets out to try to find her. He meets up with this intriguing wolf who is stuck in a trap out in the middle of nowhere. Being the kind animal lover (and animal speaker) he is, Joran works to free the wolf and finds him tagging along on the journey. Along the way, Joran meets the most interesting people...Cielle, the looney sister of the moon; Sola, mother of the sun; and Noomahh, the South Wind. Will he ever find his wife and make things right?

This would be a beautiful book to use in an English class (would have to be in a private or homeschool more than likely since it has a heavy spiritual depth and presence...I would love to see it in a public school though!). There are many allegories, parables, and overall beautiful writing and story tellings throughout this book. It is full of adventure and the author spins this tale in a manner that will draw in readers young and old. As previously mentioned, this book is likened to the writings of C.S. Lewis and fans of his type of literature will enjoy this story.

I look forward to The Map Across Time which will release in the spring as the second book in this series.

Many thanks to Susanne and Living Ink Books for providing a copy for review.
