“Mark,” I whispered, tugging his sleeve so he’d lean down, “why all this empty space?” In this very funtctional and practical world, the extravagance and luxury were a startling contrast.
Mark put his mouth so close to my ear that his words tickled. “It’s to leave room for the One. This is where we welcome Him.”
God, how can you make me feel so hungry and so full at the same time? And why do I want to run toward you when I also want to run away?
The above lines from The Restorer–just some of the reasons I love Christian fantasy. Revelation that can only come through parables. There was a spiritual theme. . .a scripture, in fact, that resonated throughout the book for me. It’s not referred to in the novel, just something I saw in the story. But believing that there was no way I could forget, I failed to write it down. Like Susan Mitchell, I am a “soccer mom” so perhaps being preoccupied and overwhelmed makes me prone to forgetfulness. Please pray with me that I remember before the end of this blog tour.
I remember how excited we were several months ago (or has it been a year?) when we heard that NavPress had signed Sharon Hinck’s The Sword of Lyric Series. Finally, I received my copy of The Restorer. I know as a mom myself, I was anxious to read a fantasy through the eyes of someone with whom I could totally relate.
