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.

    wonderful tale of forgiveness and reconciliation

    This is another lovely children's story by Patricia St. John about Lucy, who has lived with her grandparents at Pheasant Cottage since she was a little girl, but has dim memories of someone else. Who was it? Her grandparents have told her that her mother died after giving birth to her but they never say anything about her father except that he was a bad man. What are her grandparents hiding from her? Then, the grandparents become worried when they receive a letter from him about his release from prison. Lucy is determined to find the answers but it turns out to be harder than she expected. Aside from a few references to common denominational doctrines, it is a wonderful tale of forgiveness and reconciliation, and although it ends with sadness there is still hope.
