If you like Narnia...

User Review  - midwestmom - Christianbook.com

This book inspired CS Lewis and Madeleine L'Engle. The imagery and concepts are entrancing. However, it takes a bit to get used to the writer's style - definately classical literature. If you keep going, I think you'll find its well worth the ride. Read full review
