Read full description of the books:
Having gone to Israel in May for 2 weeks and read the book O Jerusalem upon my return, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and could appreciate it more than most. The contrast between the two books was interesting; they actually complemented each other quite well. The former was a dispassionate account of the events and gave the wider picture of events, whereas this book was personal and limited to a small area of the war for Jerusalem after Israel's independence in 1948. It was elucidating to read the reactions of people to some of the major events of that time period. I had read about the events, but this gave me a more complete understanding as I focused on the emotions of the people caught up in the battle for Jerusalem. This book also had a spiritual dimension that was lacking, understandably, in O Jerusalem. I would recommend reading both of these two books in order to more fully comprehend this time in contemporary Israel's history.

Read information about the authorHanna Hurnard was a twentieth century Christian author, best known for her allegory Hinds' Feet on High Places.
Hurnard was born in 1905 in Colchester, England to Quaker parents. She graduated from Ridgelands Bible College of Great Britain in 1926. In 1932 she became an independent missionary, moving to Haifa, Israel. Her work in Israel lasted 50 years, although she would later maintain a home in England as well.
Hurnard's early writings (especially Hinds' Feet on High Places and the sequel Mountain of Spices) were embraced by the mainstream Christian community, but later on in her life she seems to have departed from orthodoxy.
