Star of Light by Patricia St. John

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.

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!

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.
