This book is getting a lot of press lately. We carry the HARDCOVER edition for the same price as the softcover elsewhere. We also carry both the Hard and Soft cover editions of the companion book, Discovering the Moon.
“Verily, the religion of God is like unto heaven; fasting is its sun, and obligatory prayer is its moon.”
In part two of this tale of a young girl’s spiritual growth, set in the isles of Orkney, we rejoin Fern just as she is about to go away to school on the main island. Will she get on there? Will she make friends? Will she be homesick? All the worries of a teenager leaving the nest for the first time are added to the main thing on Fern’s mind; how will she cope with her very first Fast … within the walls of a boarding school?
But Fern is not the only “odd one out” in a strange, new place. Before the term is over she will come to learn not only that the Fast can be a source of nourishment to herself and others, but also that both tests and blessings can come from quite unexpected directions.
