Publisher's Summary

Much-Afraid begins her journey, crippled and disfigured, with the cry, "Oh, if only I could escape from this Valley of Humiliation altogether and go to the High Places." She leaves her Fearing relatives behind, and presses on to the Realm of Love. As the Chief Shepard explains, no Fears can live in this realm, because "perfect love casts out fears and everything that torments".

Written on a similar scale to the great classic Pilgrim's Progress, you'll travel along with Much-Afraid and her companions, Sorrow and Suffering, as they make the ascent to the High Places where the King of Love reigns supreme. And, you'll discover that as the journey transforms Much-Afraid into Grace and Glory, your heart will be changed as well.

Always good

Marvelous book! I was first recommended this book in print by a nun when I was 15 and I found it then and still find it to be an allegory of the very best sort. It's a wonderful adventure story for those too young to appreciate the allegory and I find new meanings each time I re-visit it as an adult.

third time, can't get enough

If you could sum up Hinds' Feet on High Places in three words, what would they be?

This is the third time I have read (first time listening to) this book, and I truly can never get enough of it. I have seen myself on my own journey with my Shepherd, Jesus Christ, as He shapes me and molds me through the trials, struggles, sorrows, etc. on my pathway through life.

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

Each time I have gone through this book I come out with even more hope, more strength, more determination to go on. Listening to Flo Schmidt only enhanced these aspects for me.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both . . . I laugh at myself, remembering the times I WAS so afraid, and how when I look back it all seemed as nothing. I cry because so many people are lost in their own anger, doubt, fear, stubbornness, etc.

Any additional comments?

I will listen to this again and again. I HIGHLY recommend you do too! Be blessed.

Great Book, Flawed Performance

Hannah Hurnard's book has long held a special place in my heart. It's a sensitive parable of the life of faith, full of the Shepherd's love. Unfortunately, Flo Schmidt's narration trivializes the book. The reading is badly overacted, giving the parable the quality of a melodrama. The reader seems to believe that we won't figure out what to feel about the story unless the emotions are hammered into us.

My recommendation: stick with the print version of the book.

Excellent Allegories!

I've read the story before and recommended it to numerous people. However, being able to listen to the audio just brought the story to life! I am reading it with my sisters and decided to listen to it instead...I am so glad I did!

For all ages

This beautiful story will encourage young adults/ older children.
Even better, it will remind adults of who God says they really are --no matter their circumstances.

One of my all time favorite books!

The only thing that disappointed was the quality of the recording. There was an echo and at times it was “crackling” a lot.

Excellent

Really enjoyed revisiting this book in audio format. In general I think the narrator does a good job with a range of voices although I found Much-Afraid a bit too ‘girly’ at times. Love this allegory- truly inspired.

Beautiful book of love and forgiveness

One of my favourite books, beautifully written and narrated. Based on Solomon's Song of Songs, Hannah Hurnard really captures a wonderful book of love.

Beautiful Story

Absolutely Beautiful Allegory but
I don’t think the narrators voice quite with the characters of the story.
