  Elizabeth: A Holy Land Pilgrimage is
   not the typical inspirational novel!

Part travelogue, part history lesson, part
Bible study, this book blends a wonderful
story with empathetic characters. Author
Cheryl Dickow's research and attention to
detail are apparent in this smartly written
tale. Dickow's strengths lie in both
character development and in educating
the reader without taking on an overly
dogmatic tone. In reading this novel, I
learned a tremendous amount about Jewish
culture and its relevance to the roots of
Christianity. The close connection I felt with
several of the characters in this book, along
with my admiration for the wisdom and
spiritual reflections of author Cheryl
Dickow, leave me hoping that we will be
treated to a sequel to Elizabeth: A Holy
Land Pilgrimage.
