“This imaginative novel may make you a believer.” —O, the Oprah Magazine

"A young girl in ancient Palestine struggles with her calling as a spiritual leader in Wolf's audacious, deftly woven debut."—Publishers Weekly
“This book took me on a journey back to the days of Jesus. I was surprised in more ways than I ever could have imagined. The Way is one of those rare novels that makes you think.”—Javier Sierra, New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Supper
“The Way is a unique and ambitious debut novel, certain to provoke passionate discussions.”—John Shors, bestselling author of Beneath a Marble Sky
“Wolf’s voice, vision, and verve combine to make The Way an emotional and action-packed debut.”—Alice Peck, author of Bread, Body, Spirit: Finding the Sacred in Food and Next to Godliness
“The Way is a magical, evocative first novel that I plan to buy a carton of to give to my family and friends. Kristen Wolf’s rich imagery transports the reader into ancient Palestine where harmony and balance—the feminine Way—have been lost in the worship of a vengeful male deity. The tension between how the world is and how it might be if people followed The Way is as vital a question today as it was in ancient times. This message of compassion, healing, and respect for women could indeed transform our world.”—Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of A Woman’s Journey to God
“The point [Wolf] makes in this book is one I deeply believe in: we begin with the mother and then we lose our way—all of us.”—Kavita N. Ramdas, the Global Fund for Women
"..this spiritually provocative novel will enthrall people of all faiths."—Bookloons
