CS Lewis - The Chronicles of Narnia: The Horse and His Boy
Why I like this book: I read this book two years ago and it helped me to see that God is always at work, even when I thought he was absent. Even though it’s a young adult book, I highly recommend it for any age.
One of my favourite quotes: “... I was the lion you do not remember who pushed the boat in which you lay, a child near death, so that it came to shore where a man sat, wakeful at midnight, to receive you.”
From the Publisher:
On a desperate journey, two runaways meet and join forces. Though they are only looking to escape their harsh and narrow lives, they soon find themselves at the centre of a terrible battle. It is a battle that will decide their fate and the fate of Narnia itself.
The Horse and His Boy is the third book in C. S. Lewis’s classic fantasy series that has drawn readers of all ages into a magical land where horses talk and destiny awaits for over sixty years. This is a novel that stands on its own, but if you would like to return to Narnia, read Prince Caspian, the fourth book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
