Overview

Now that the Cape Light election is over, Mayor Emily Warwick can finally focus on her burgeoning relationship with Sara-the daughter she gave up for adoption twenty years ago. Seeing her after all these years has stirred up some conflicting feelings for Emily. While she is grateful to have Sara back in her life, she can't help but regret their years apart. Typically she would turn to Reverend Ben for guidance, but turmoil within his own family has inspired a crisis of faith for the minister, making him question whether he is qualified to counsel his congregants.

And then there's the fact that Emily is slowly falling for newspaper publisher Dan Forbes, who'd been all set to leave for an extended sailing trip until an accident dashed his plans-giving him and Emily more time to develop their bond.

But with two grown children of his own, would Dan ever want to start another family? Emily hopes so-because she's eager for a second chance at life...

Editorial Reviews

With the Cape Light election over, Mayor Emily Warwick can finally focus more on her dear adopted daughter Sara and her deep regret about their long estrangement. For counsel, she turns to Reverend Ben, but the good-hearted minister seems distracted, troubled by turmoil within his own family. Sara's longing for a second chance is partially satisfied by her new relationship with newspaper publisher Dan Forbes. But does Dan really want to start a second family? A touching faith-based novel co-authored by the Painter of Light.\

Meet the Author

Thomas Kinkade is America’s most collected living artist, a painter-communicator whose tranquil, light infused paintings bring hope and joy to millions each year. Each painting Thomas Kinkade creates is a quiet messenger in the home, affirming the basic values of family and home, faith in God, and the luminous beauty of nature.



It was while growing up in the small town of Placeville, California that these simple, life-affirming values were instilled in him. It was also during this time that Thomas began to explore the world around him. He once spent a summer on a sketching tour with a college friend, producing the best selling instructional book, “The Artist’s Guide to Sketching.” The success of the book landed the two young artists at Ralph Bakshi Studios to create background art for the animation feature, “Fire and Ice,” where Kinkade was able to explore light and imaginative worlds with abandon.



After the film, Kinkade earned a living as a painter, selling his originals in galleries throughout California. In 1982, he married his childhood sweetheart, Nanette and two years later they began to publish his art.



FAMILY AND FAITH



Kinkade is a devout Christian and credits the Lord for both the ability and the inspiration to create his paintings. His goal as an artist is to touch people of all faiths, to bring peace and joy into their lives through the images he creates. The letters he receives every day testify to the fact that he is achieving this goal.



A devoted husband and doting father to their daughters, Kinkade hides the letter “N” in his paintings to pay tribute to his wife, Nanette, and the girls find their names and images in many of his paintings.



Warner Books has recently published Thomas Kinkade’s book Lightposts for Living which shares Thom’s inspiring words as well as his art. The result is a glorious volume, exquisitely designed to please the eye and the spirit. Each chapter acts like an old-fashioned lightpost illuminating the choices that enrich our lives.



AWARDS AND ACCOLADES



Kinkade has received numerous awards for his works. He has been named by the National Association of Limited Edition Dealers (NALED) as Graphic Artist of the Year for the fifth year in a row. He has also been named NALED’s Artist of the Year and his works have been named Graphic Art Print of the Year for eight years in a row.



Kinkade has also won the Collectors Edition Award of Excellence and was a charter inductee, along with his idol, Norman Rockwell, to the Bradford International Hall of Fame for plate artists. In 1989, he was the Official Artist for the National Parks Collector’s Print and has donated his art for the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Christmas program, as well as, granting the VFW the right to use his images on their Christmas cards. Kinkade was also inducted into the US Art Hall of Fame in 1999.

I have only read the first novel in the Cape Light series but loved it the more I got into the story. Felt the beginning was a little slow on action but loved it once I got going. Can't wait to find the next novel. Can anyone tell me the order of the series? I can't fint it anywhere? Enjoy!

This book is so emotional I actually cried and I have never cried over a book! This entire series is wonderful, you feel like you are a part of the story and watching it unroll before your eyes on the streets of your hometown (at least if you live in a small town like I do). These books are like Kinkade's paintings--they have an overwhelming 'homey' and uplifting spirit.

The Cape Light trilogy is the best books I've ever read. Better than Nora, Danielle, and Stephen. There must be more. Please Thomas and Katherine, more stories from Cape Light.

Thomas Kinkade is so incredibly talented. His paintings are breathtakingly beautiful and his books are just as wonderful. I adore this series. I hope he writes a fourth installment very quickly! :) I love how each book ends with a way for it to be continued...what will happen with all of the beloved characters? I pray that Thomas will be inspired to write another book! Hope everyone enjoys this terrific series! :)

I read all of the books in the Series and the other ones as well. Did get confused on the order of the stories, but eventually found out which one was first, second and so on. Nice wholesome stories, they make you believe that even though your life is far from perfect, if you have faith you can accomplish almost anything.
