Overview

Inspired by the artistic vision of world-renowned landscape painter Thomas Kinkade—and imbued with the light of his uplifting message—this heartwarming novel introduces us to the quaint town of Cape Light, and those who call it home…
 
Nestled in New England is the picturesque seaside hamlet of Cape Light, where everyone knows everyone, and folks still care about one another. But Cape Lighters have their share of hidden dreams, desires, and doubts, too. Like Mayor Emily Warwick, who sometimes feels that her job and her identity are inseparable, and her sister and rival, Jessica, who has torn herself away from the big city’s excitement and sophistication to come home and care for their ailing mother. Or Reverend Ben, who counsels and consoles an entire town while coming to grips with his own private sorrows, and Charlie, the owner of the local diner, who isn’t shy about letting the mayor know that he is after her job.
 
They are friends and neighbors, doers and dreamers. They laugh and love and build their lives together in the town of Cape Light—and they will work their way into your heart...

When I read this book, I felt like I was in one of his paintings. It was a town that a lot of people would like to live, peaceful and unhurried. I would read this over and over again.

This book is simply amazing. I love this series right now I'm on book 4. This novel is so well written and by the end you will feel like your a resident of Cape Light! I love how the authors switch from story to story with-in the town. This novel is a representation to what God can do in your life if you really trust him and have faith. These characters are struggling with love, hopes, and dreams but continue to grow in their faith and walk with God. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! :)

Very inspirational. I've always wanted to know what the people in the paintings of light where like and now I know they are very near and dear to the heart. If you are feeling lost and trying to find your way...this is the book to help you see the light. I can't wait to read the next installment.

Life in Cape Light might seem idyllic to Bostonians, living one-hour drive to the small coastal town¿s south. People know each other and even greet one another as family and friends are important to the residents. Thirtyish Jessica Warwick takes a leave of absence from her Boston banking job to return to her hometown to help her older sister, the village mayor Emily, care for their mother, recovering from a stroke. Jessica is bored of the limited social life whose activities either centers on the church or the Clam Box diner. She cannot wait for her duty to end so she can rush back to the exciting big city and her developing romance with cultured Paul Copperfield. Meanwhile the Clam Box owner Charlie Bates decides to run against Emily in the upcoming mayoral election for he believes Emily is a poor leader. Surprising even to herself, sophisticated Jessica is attracted to Sam Morgan, a church attendee handyman. With all this engulfing the two siblings, Cape May remains a haven to most of the villagers. CAPE LIGHT is an inspirational tale that brazenly tries to persuade readers into wholesome living through Christian messages. The story line contains numerous subplots focused on the trials, tribulations, and inner beliefs and strengths of several residents (more than just described above). Though tending towards sugary melodrama with little action, readers will relish how each key protagonist deals with their personal problems through love, friendship, and the Lord. Harriet Klausner

I liked this book. It was different from other romance novels that I've read. I liked how while there was an obvious main story line, it gave different viewpoints from the other characters and tibits into their lives.

I have spent a lot of time trying to find all of the Cape Light series by Thomas Kinkade and was very pleased to find them on Nook! Inspirational, close-to-home stories based on his famous paintings. Uplifting and relatable.
