This fall I have been longing for some good fiction. I am a prolific reader but most of what I read is non fiction. I'm not of the mind to read something like "50 Shades of Grey" and I'm finding fiction that feeds both my mind and my soul increasingly hard to find. I'm not sure how I missed this great read (Elizabeth: A Holy Land Pilgrimage) since it's by one of my favorite authors and was originally released in 2010. It has now been re released in celebration of the Year of Faith and it's a must read!! I was hooked from page one. Elizabeth (Beth as she's called in the book) is a 48 year old mother of 4 who goes to The Holy Land in search of peace for her life. I believe her journey represents so many women who give their entire selves to serve their families but forget to give a little to themselves. This book isn't the typical "mid life crisis me me me" story that our culture is so fond of pushing on us. While Beth was experiencing some stress in her marriage she did not look to the world or other men to fulfill her. She went to the Holy Land in search of God. She found Him in so many of the people and events that took place while she visited. I was especially fascinated by the explanations of the Jewish customs and beliefs that truly are carried over in one way or another into Christian living. After all, each of us have Jewish roots. I know little about the Jewish customs but learned much (and was prompted to research more on my own) through reading this book. Beth's experience traveling the Via Dolorosa left me reading and re-reading certain passages again and again. I have never been to the Holy Land so reading about it in such detail was such a gift to me. The character development was fabulous and this book left me begging the author for a sequel!Read more ›

Cheryl has written an excellent book which I had a hard time putting down. Those women who are feeling down about getting older will come away encouraged to know that what they are feeling is felt and understood by others. She is to be praised for the importance she puts on being a wife and mother in a world that devalues that calling and service. Even though it is inspirational it is also a great work of fiction.

While the title would make you think you were going to read about the land of Israel it is really about the most important part of the Holy Land, it's people. They have endured hardships just because they are Jewish yet Cheryl touches on their secret of survival which is loving God and as commanded by Him loving their fellow man. In this book Christians are given insight into the richness and beauty of the Jewish roots of our faith.

There are surprises in the book , some of which I won't share so as not to spoil it for anyone. You will have an unanswered question which will make you want the sequel to be released soon. And just when you think it has ended Cheryl has added some information for each chapter to help apply some of her insights to your own life and also she shares some of the web sites where we can get more information.

Cheryl Dickow is a fairly new writer who will soon be in the ranks of the best.

Beth Gantry, Liz, Elizabeth...the main character of Elizabeth: A Holy Land Pilgrimage is many things to many people. What seems unclear in the opening pages of this debut novel from established non-fiction author Cheryl Dickow is how Elizabeth will be able to reconcile her roles as wife, mother and teacher with the woman she feels she has always wanted to become.

In the opening pages of this engrossing story, we meet Elizabeth and depart with her on the journey of a lifetime: her solo trip to Israel. She has dreamed of this pilgrimage for many years, but in the end it appears to be her discontent with her life that drives her to finally embark on her voyage. Beth has given her life to serving others and has come to feel only disappointment and resentment in return for her loving efforts. Her relationship with her husband Luke is strained to the point of near divorce. She feels a growing gulf between herself and her teenage children, the oldest of whom has flown the coop for college. Even her spiritual life seems dry and distant.

Beth looks at her journey to Israel as an opportunity to regain the life she feels she has missed out on in all of her efforts to care for others. "Her ache for what life hadn't yet held was becoming almost unbearable at times." Leaving her children in the care of her very driven and increasingly distant husband, Beth throws herself into her travel. Her desire is not to have the typical tourist experience of the Holy Land. Rather, she arranges for apartment housing in hopes of truly experiencing the traditions of the Jewish people. After having spent years studying the Jewish culture, "Elizabeth wanted to know, up close and personal, what is was like to live as a `chosen one'.

I am not a writer, in fact this is the first book review I have ever written. After I finished reading "Elizabeth: A Holy Pilgrimage" I felt compelled to write a review. This book was a delight to read. By the end I felt that the families and characters in this book were friends of mine. I also felt as if I had taken a trip to the Holy Land. Cheryl did a wonderful job of bringing the characters and Israel to life. I find few books today that relate to my vocation as a Catholic Wife and mom of 5 but this one did. I enjoyed the book so much that I am hoping that Cheryl Dickow writes a sequel so we can enjoy the characters again. I highly recommend this book!
