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.

    Highly recommended, you must read this book!

    A true classic written in a special way to captivate young and old readers, alike. This book gently, and beautifully illustrates the gospel with ways young children love. Happy reading!

    lovely story about repentance and forgiveness

    Patricia St. John lived from 1914 to 1992. This is probably her most famous book and is a lovely story about repentance and forgiveness. Set in the Swiss Alps, it tells of Annette, her younger brother Dani who is injured in a fall caused by a neighbor boy Lucien, Annette's anger at Lucien, Lucien's sorrow for his deed, and how heeding the Savior's voice brought about healing.
    There are a few references to denominational beliefs and practices, but these do not take away from the beauty of the tale. My only question is, just what about Miss St. John's original language needed to be "sensitively adapted"? Moody has a bad habit of "updating" many of the books in their catalogue (they did this with the original "Sugar Creek Gang" series). My personal opinion is that by reading such books children miss out on some of the quaintness of expression common in former times. I would like to get a copy of the original and compare it with the new edition. In any event, this was still a very enjoyable and profitable book to read. We also watched the movie based on it and liked it too.

    Excellent book!

    A delightful story set in the mountains of Switzerland, this book teaches about the importance of forgiveness, but it's not preachy. A great read---highly recommended!
