Meet the Author


PATRICIA ST. JOHN (1919-1993) was a nurse, missionary and author. She earned a nursing degree at St. Thomas' Hospital in London in 1946. In the early 1950's she moved to Tangier, Morocco where she served as a missionary nurse for 27 years. Throughout her life, she travelled extensively in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, as the settings of her novels reflect. In 1977, she returned to England, where she cared for elderly relatives and ministered from her home to youths, single parents, and the elderly. Patricia authored numerous books, including Treasures of the Snow, The Tanglewoods' Secret, The Secret at Pheasant Cottage, and Star of Light.

    a very enjoyable book

    This is another charming book by Patricia St. John, told in the first person, about a rather spoiled young girl named Elaine whose father had been killed and whose mother must go to France for work. Therefore, Elaine goes to live with the Owen family of Wales. Elaine's mother had known Mrs. Owen knew in college. At first Elaine feels rejected and miserable, but gradually, through the godly inflences of the Owenses, she decides to give her life to Jesus and learns to overcome her selfishness. In fact, she herself begins to help a bitter neighbor girl Philippa who has polio.
    When her mother returns in the end, even though she wants to stay with the Owenses, Elaine realizes that she must go back to her mother because her mother needs her. There is some adventure along the way as Elaine sees a thief who breaks into Philippa's cottage, spies him again when they go to town, and encounters him yet again when they are on vacation in the mountains. References are made to celebrating Easter services and evangelical doctrine of becoming a Christian just by asking Jesus to come into your heart. Otherwise, this is a very enjoyable book.
