Fiction Favorites

One of my favorite ways to start a discipleship conversation is over a book of fiction.  Here are some of my personal favorites:

By Jane Austen: any of her novels 🙂

By C.S. Lewis: The Great Divorce and ‘Till We Have Faces

By Dorothy Sayers: her series of Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries

By J.R.R. Tolkein: The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Our family loves to read aloud in the evenings.  We’ve read different kinds of books at different stages of family life, but see below for some of our all-time favorites. I have them listed roughly by age appropriateness (though many are ageless)…
