Overview

Hamid rubbed the light from his eyes and looked again. He was not dreaming.
It was his stepfather! The man watched Kinza as a snake might watch a baby rabbit at play, waiting for the moment to strike. And for one breathless moment Hamid was sure that he would reach out and snatch her away. Hamid does not want his little blind sister, Kinza, to be sold to a beggar by their stepfather, so he decides to rescue her. Together they escape from their mountain village to a town where there may be a new home for Kinza. But this is only the start of their adventures. Will
Kinza be safe? What will happen to Hamid who dares not go back home? Set in North
Africa, readers will be delighted by yet another of Patricia St. John's exciting,
freshly edited novels.

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,

In a mountain village in Morocco, an Englishwoman transforms the lives of her visiting niece, a blind baby girl, and an eleven-year-old boy through her work as a missionary nurse.

    Hamid's baby sister is blind. Once his stepfather finds this out

    Hamid's baby sister is blind. Once his stepfather finds this out, baby Kinza is going to be sold to a beggar, because people take pity and give generous money to blind children.

    So, a plan is hatched. Hamid will sneak away with his sister. He will journey until he finds the home of the English nurse in another town, many days away. Hamid's mother told him that this nurse can heal Kinza's sight.

    This was a wonderful story that I enjoyed very much. Many lessons can be learned by reading it.
    Once again, a fantastic story by Patricia St. John!

    This is a rewritten,edited version. It is not the origninal.

    I have loved this story since I was a little girl. I am very disappapointed that it was considered necessary for "Mary Mills [to adapt] the language of the book for a new generation..." as quoted from p. 5. Nothing in the description indicated that this was a revised edition. Although the story is the same, the writing style is not and some descriptions have been taken out.

    This is a very touching story

    I began reading this 254 page book two days ago and am now nearly finished with it. It is the story of a young boy who risks his life to safe the life of his blind baby sister. He must travel over mountains and through rivers. Once he gets to his destination, a missionary nurse, he must learn to survive on the streets with few clothes and little food. I think all people who have a love to read should read this book.
