Moody Publishing Star of Light - eBook

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. Recommended for ages 10 to 12.

Star of Light is an excellent reminder of how we ought to show the love of Jesus to others - by our actions, not just our words. What a powerful, practical illustration of the Gospel! I loved this book and intend to read more by Patricia St. John. The item itself was shipped promptly and was in wonderful condition when it arrived. Thank you!

5 of the 6 books we purchased by Patricia M. St.John were Revised by Mary Mills; the 6th was not revised; were wonderful reading for the whole family...
They Were: WHERE THE RIVER BEGINS
STAR OF LIGHT
THE SECRET AT PHEASANT COTTAGE
RAINBOW GARDEN
THE TANGLEWOODS' SECRET
TREASURES OF THE SNOW
Each one is full of Valuable Vingettes of Solid Principles For Christian Living, Simple Yet Profoundly Written, Making them Easily Applicable To Every Aged Reader !!!
THANKS PATRICIA M. ST.JOHN, MARY MILLS AND MOODY PRESS...GOD BLESS!!

This is a wonderful story, filled with details of life in Morocco and the loveliness of shining the gospel light in a dark place. But it is disappointing that Patricia St. John's delightful writing has been revised at all. I prefer the original text. Nevertheless, new readers will love the story of big brother Hamid and the missionary nurse who rescues his little sister.

This book deeply affected my 8-yr old daughter this summer. She said it helped her truly understand what it means to be a Christian. Patricia St John does a fabulous job illustrating, first through fictional situations, then through the character's gentle explanations of how Christ's love can change us & save us. Put so simply & beautifully. I was impressed & humbled at the same time.
