A modern classic book on Western spirituality, this book translates from the Russian "candid conversations of a Pilgrim with His spiritual Father" and is an autobiographical account of a wandering pilgrim who is seeking to understand how to, in the words of St. Paul, "pray without ceasing".

A beautiful blend of inspirational poetry with Scripture inviting us to journey with God. A small book, this would make a wonderful small gift.

And the Mountains Echoed
Author
Khaled Hosseini
Review
From the author of The Kite Runner, this book is engaging from start to finish. Completed this compelling book (400+ pages) in three days--kept wanting to go back for more! It's all about family connections and how actions within one family affect multiple extended families and future generations.

Review
This is a young adult book that takes place in 1925 in New York City. It is full of mystery, romance, crime, and many other characteristics that make a book interesting. I will definitely be filming a review on my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/HeathersBookReview shortly. I definitely recommend for anyone who is looking for a good read that is hard to put down!
