My thoughts: I love stories that change the character(s) dramatically, especially if it’s for the better. Miss Little did very well in making the character traits stand out, and showing the progression and sudden turn in behavior. I enjoyed all the likenesses to Pilgrim’s Progress: the physicality of spiritual things (hope, joy, etc.) and the names (Wit, Lady Mercy). The fruit of the spirit was a great tool in the plotline, and made the story that much more unique and special. I was perplexed by the image on the back cover for a while, but near the end realized it’s significance. If you like fantasy books with a focus on characters, then this is a great choice. Though short, I highly recommend it!
