Author Bio

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.

    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!

    This review was written for Star of Light.
    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 review was written for Star of Light.
    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.
