Description

Patricia St John's life is a story in itself but she grew up to become one of the world's best loved Christian writers for children. When looking after thirty children in a boarding school, her exciting bedtime stories were favourites with the children. They were later to become her classic stories, Tanglewood's Secret and Treasures of the Snow. Every place that she called home was the inspiration for yet another story that brought children to understand and love the Lord Jesus Christ.

Review quote

Patricia St John was missionary; she was a nurse; she based her children's books on places where she lived or visited; her parents were missionaries.. Irene Howat does a wonderful job of making Miss St John come to life on the pages. A recommendation on the back of the book is for ages 7-9 (read to me) and 9-14 (read myself), but I would think it's a great book to give to anyone of any age. -- CLC World
