    "A timeless and beautiful allegory"

    Having read this story in print several times, I was expecting to enjoy hearing and was delighted to discover that the narrator was Nadia May, not the person listed in the catalog. Her voice matches perfectly what I would imagine the author's voice would sound like. This is one of the finest devotional stories ever written. Hannah Hurnard's sequel, "Mountains of Spices", carries on the story after the heroine gets her "hinds' feet" and returns to help lead others out of the Valley. Maybe someday Audible will get rights to that too. Meanwhile, enjoy this heart-warming story of how little MuchAfraid learns to follow the Shepherd up to the Mountains of the Realm of Love.

    Story
    "A beautiful story packed with scripture and poetry"

    I think every one who seeks to walk with God ought to read this book. The author weaves scripture throughout this allegory, and if you study the Bible throughout life you will recognize bits and pieces of the Word interwoven in the story.

    This version is almost twice the length of the other one available on Audible because it has about 2 hours worth of biographical information about Hannah Hurnard which is after the story. The biography is itself interesting.

    I would note that Ms. Hurnard's later works are frequently criticized for embracing some unbiblical principles. However I cannot find anything in this effort that seems to deviate from God's word. It is a beautiful story, and is frequently recommended to persons who find themselves experiencing sorrow and pain in their life. The book basically is a great picture of how sorrow and suffering can be great companions in helping us walk more intimately with God. I fear this may not encourage many readers.

    Additionally, this seems to be a book that many men within the church are completely unfamiliar with. This saddens me, it seems too many men believe that female Christian authors only discuss subjects that are of interest to women. I have found this to be generally untrue. The inspiration for this work comes primarily from Song of Solomon, Psalm 18, and the book of Habakkuk. I have also found relevant passages from Exodus, 1 Peter, the book of Ruth, and various sections from the prophet Isaiah.

    I should also point out that I rather enjoyed the narrator. I see the narrator has a great many books on Audible, and that they cover a variety of subjects. (not just a bunch of Christian books) I would definitely be interested in other books read by Nadia May.

    "The Allegory of a Spiritual Journey"

    This book, Hinds' Feet on High Places, is a precious book that teaches us to see things that are trying to take us away from God in a clearer light, calling them exactly what they are, such as Craven Fear and the Fearing Relatives. It also teaches us to stop and give glory to God at times when He triumphantly brings us through tough times. It is a humbling and honest portrait of the Christian life well lived.

    "Christen classic"

    Spirit filled with lessons to live by. I love the journey this book takes you on, teaches that we are not perfect nor do we need to be for God to love love us. For God see us as we will be not as we are.

    "Deedah"
    What made the experience of listening to Hinds' Feet on High Places the most enjoyable?

    Listening to it read by a British woman made this book fantastic to listen to. I've probably listened between 15-20 times; there is so much Truth to glean from this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Much Afraid, because I identify with her so much in almost every way - being fearful, wanting to be loved, and wanting to really know the Shepherd of my soul.


    What does Nadia May bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her British voice is fantastic. I have to travel a lot to see my mother, so listening to this book all the time while in the car has made it so much better.

    "The Narrator sounds ill"

    I love this book, and have read it many times, and ordered it because I thought it might be nice to have it read to me. I can not listen to it. The narrator sounds like she has a terrible cold, and I start feeling sick just listening to her. After every sentence there are long pauses where you just imagine her catching breath and swallowing lumps of mucous. Sorry. I can't put up with that. I wish I would have listened to the preview prior to buying. A lesson learned. Always listen to the 'preview' prior to purchasing so you know you can stand the voice. Very Sad. What a way to ruin a wonderful classic.
