One Woman. One God. One Unforgettable Hike.
The Restlands is a simple but stunning story. This allegorical tale of a woman on a hike with God will take your heart on a divine journey to explore the wilds of rest, experience the incomparable nature of God’s goodness, and awaken the deep places inside to freedom. If you are looking for a REST in the world of RUSH, this is a hike you don’t want to miss. “I’ve seen, Scribe. I’ve seen what you can do working hard. I am a proud Papa – always. Let’s watch what I can do when you rest.”
The whimsy of C.S. Lewis and the poignancy of Paul Young’s, The Shack, converge in this thought-provoking allegory of a woman on a hike with God. The Restlands is not just a book you read, but a journey your experience.
The story follows the journey of Scribe and Papa through beautiful scenery, challenging decisions, revelations, meeting other characters on the journey, and culminates in a stunning scene at their final destination. The book highlights the journey with full color photography and excerpts from Scribe’s journal sprinkled throughout.
Sara also said on social media,
I wrote this story during a very hard season of life when depression and hopelessness were my constant companions. Despite the hardships I was walking through, writing had always felt life-giving, so I wrote with the hopes that my heart would come alive again. Writing became my umbilical chord to life and to encountering a love of God that awakened me to a new rhythm of life – a life lived from rest.
I am extremely excited to get my hands on a copy! Sara and I go way back from the days when I was attending seminary. Little did either of us know we would both become authors.
