ISBN: 9781479139071 | List Price: $12.98 |Format: Softcover | Page Count: 240
In the year 2162, a young boy named Jal Valhyn is caught in a maelstrom of violence and conflict.
His country is at war and the world government based on humanistic principles that had fulfilled its promise of a halcyon peace for over a century has fallen.
Alone and helpless he has an encounter with an invisible being that leads to a seven days journey.
With his two appointed companions he sets out for a safe haven far from the world of danger and turmoil.
Each day’s trek brings the gift of new friendships and a growing awareness that life has dimensions grounded in more than the material.
He intuitively grasps the faith that sustains the inhabitants of an enduring peaceable kingdom.

My Impressions: 
This was a really hard book for me to get into. I would compare the book to that of something C.S. Lewis would write with its biblical themes and human characteristics of the duck and the butterfly. It was hard for me to get into the characters and really follow what was going on. It had a lot of twists and turns and too much allegory for my taste, but my daughter enjoyed it alot. She thought it was very fanciful and reminder her of a dreamland. She enjoyed the humor of the butterfly and duck. Although I personally did not enjoy the book I did appreciate the spiritual journey the boy undertook and the many themes within such as seeking wisdom, new friendships, discovery of life and Gods plan.  The cover was well done and really captured what the book was about.
 
About the Author:

The Boy Who Walked A Way began several ago and was published in 2013. The book is a an allegory written on simple lines suitable for both adults and children.

Nancy Janes has written on various Christian based topics since childhood. She grew up in the Appalachians of Kentucky where her Christian heritage rooted firmly before relocating to an urban setting in mid-adolescence.

Her mental health career focused on therapy for families, children, women’s issues and the elderly. She wrote programs for families and other work related activities. After retirement she resumed writing fiction and finds its demands as absorbing as her former occupation.

The Appalachians have once again reclaimed her after an interlude in the West. She and her Quaker husband live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

Another work of fiction based on selected characters from the book, The Boy Who Walked A Way will be released in the future.
