Welcome aboard! Are you ready to set sail to distant lands? So am I! Some of my favorite books ever are on this list! First port of call? Ancient Babylon!

1. Garden of Madness by Tracy L. Higley (Ancient Babylon) 
This book is not for the faint of heart. It is dark in places, yet the light of God shines so brightly. It's one of my favorite novels of all time. It is set during the time of King Nebuchadnezzar madness. Higley always transports me in time and place, but there was just something very special about this story.

I read this book last year with a friend and I was so amazed and inspired. Why classified as fiction, it is an account or Anna Leonowens and her efforts to teach and create a better future for Siam. I was really blessed by this book and highly recommend it to slightly older readers. It was one of my top ten books of 2018.

3. The Shadow Things by Jennifer Freitag (Ancient England)
I still refer to this book on a regular basis. It is a powerful story about the gospel coming to a hostel culture. This is another book that isn't for the faint of heart. There are a lot of hard things but oh how amazing is the love and grace of God in the end.

4. From the Dark to the Dawn by Alicia A. Willis (Ancient Rome)
This book is another that isn't easy, to read either. Yet, it is an amazing story about a young boy standing for what is right when it could cost him everything. It is also about redemption and the work of Christ to change lives.

5. Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne (All over the world!)
I read this last year and I loved it! It is a fun, lighthearted adventure book that gives a glimpse into a lot of areas around the world.

  5. I was challenged and convicted when I read From Dark to the Dawn. It is sushi a beautiful picture of God's redemption when Christianity was just beginning to spread.
