    I would have liked to have given this five stars since I enjoyed the story very much. I felt as though I was in Puritan England in the seventeenth century and I loved the use of the language. I did feel sad that John didn't get dressed up for his wedding to Elizabeth and almost forgot that it was happening in the first place. However, some of the terminology threw me a bit. I wondered if folk had 'issues' in those times, plus the word 'okay' was used and that pulled me out of the story somewhat. But even so, I would recommend this wonderful story as a 'must read'.

    It certainly brought to life how difficult life was in those days, and how religion could cause problems. Not until I had read this book did I read the reviews and discover that it was loosely based on Bunyan's life. It made me respect him even more, knowing what he had had to endure.

    I was totally caught up in this book from the first page. Jody Hedlund is very adept at crafting a great story, hero's and heroine's lives interwoven with romance, historical fact, danger,and so many "nearly but not quite" moments of misunderstanding and thwarted hopes. I struggled to put it down to go to bed at a reasonable hour. I didn't realise until I reached the end that she had based her work of ficton on some of the main historical facts of the lives of John and Elizabeth Bunyan- this was a fascinating post script to the story, and I ended up googling more about John Bunyan. I couldn't find much more about Elizabeth than the facts the author had included in her story, but found some really inspiring articles about John Bunyan that I never knew.-a great book.

    This was a fantastic read. once stated I could not put it down. I liked the fact that although based on Pilgrims Progress it kept the historic facts but a good story around it. It would make a good tv film/mini series.

    I found this book interesting without realising whose story it was based on and found the historical context fascinating . It was moving at the end to realise who John was

    The theme of God's calling and the historical setting were fantastic. I really enjoyed getting into Elizabeth's life and understanding more about that time. It is the only way I can take history in and the sacrificial nature of following God's call is a lesson for us today.
