“It is the condition of our hearts He cares about. In His eyes, no one is greater or less than the other – except in the condition of his or her heart.”
Travane, by M. D. Schlatter, is a fantasy story. Rayna is the youngest child of the leader of the country Travane. She is anticipating her Coming of Age Ceremony but things happen to put it off. She studies Theology with Jeroha. One day he tells her they must meet in the Santuary. While there she is engulfed in purple and blue, The Divine has chosen her to be a Settling. The area has not had a Settling for many years. But Jeroha has troubling news for her. CherRio Nikalon is coming to their country and expected her hand in marriage, or there will be war.
She is to go on a journey with Nikalon. As she is getting ready to leave, her mother tells her that what ever truth she may find, to remember her mother loved her from the moment she saw her, to never doubt that she is her daughter. Rayna takes a friend, Oneve, on the journey. Oneve has had her Coming of Age Ceremony and has been interviewing for a husband. But it is Nikalon she has fallen for.
This is an interesting, well written story that has many good lessons. The story is fast paced with a lot of action. The author does a wonderful job of teaching Bible truths within this story. The author also includes the history of Travane and explanations of the different titles. This story is written for young adults that will be enjoyed by adults as well.
