    I read “Petra” on the flights to Sharm el-Sheik and thoroughly enjoyed it. Two weeks ago I walked Petra with our group and your pictures are wonderful. Thank you for climbing up to the High Place of Sacrifice to share with us.

      So glad you enjoyed the book, Sari! And I hadn’t thought of the fact that even those who visit Petra might not make that climb, so I’m all the happier that I did, so I can share it with you. Glad you got to visit the city!

    Enjoyed reading my first T.L Higley novel so much that I had to look at travel journal and pictures. This will not be my last T.L Higley novel. Am ready to begin another adventure: Pompeii.

    Hey Tracy, I just finished reading your book Petra last night. It was VERY good! I will be in Petra in 3 weeks & having read your book will only make the time there more interesting. Also, I enjoyed looking at your pictures. Thanks for another wonderful book. Can’t wait for the release of Garden of Madness.

    Tracy, I just finished reading Petra. I have went through all of the pictures and your notes with them. It brings the travel I just had with the characters to even more of a chilling revelation of this hidden city of Petra. I loved the book so much. I so appreciate your pictures and notes that you have given us to even further our journey of this book. God has blessed you with such a precious gift of writing these stories that have encouraged others and myself to strive even more to have a passion for getting even closer with our Blessed Savior. To also realize the blessings that we have in this day and time that the people of Petra did not have….I am hoping to be able to get to go to Israel next February. Please agree with me in prayer …God willing that I will be able to go and the funds will come together…thank you! God bless…Kay

    Tracy, thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures of Petra. My family and I lived in Jordan twice in the ’90s (husband was an Middle East expert/linguist with the Army), and we traveled to Petra many times. Your pictures brought back memories of my daughters when they were 4 and 6 and then 8-10 and 10-12. When we visited Petra, we were able to hire horses and ride through the Siq. Now that was cool! Time to start reading your book!

    Thank you for sharing your experiences and writings with us, Tracy. I have enjoyed your books. I especially like it that you research and take the harsh (and disgusting) realities that were our history and what our ancestors might have experienced and don’t sugarcoat it. And in the end also share with us a story of Jesus’ love and endurance. I love it that you write about atheists becoming Christians. It reminds us about ourselves. I once read about your books that, in a sea of Amish fiction (and I would have to add simple romance for lack of a better phrase), your writing is refreshing. I agree. Again, thanks! PS. I was moved by the Arch of Titus and seeing you sit on the altar at Petra. I didn’t know that such a disgusting arch existed and seeing a Christian sit atop a pagan altar, as if in defiance, was pretty cool too. :)

    Really enjoyed your pictures and taking the journey with you. I had no idea Petra was so huge – pictures I have never seen before. Now I am anxious to read your book!!

    That was Fantastic. I enjoyed viewing the photos of Petra. My sister really loves reading your books. She does not have a computer so she not able to view the photos. Thank-you for sharing the photos.

    I loved the inside look in the treasurer and the one tomb. There was a Christian church that met in one of the buildings at one time. Fascinating. Going to Petra is definitely on my “to do” list.
