Publisher's Description

Ruth and her beloved brother Philip find solace in the expanse of Tanglewoods'. There they escape into bird watching, climbing, and general misadventures with their friend Terry. But life with their Aunt is harsh and Ruth suffers from an incorrigible temper. Just when she thinks she can't take it anymore, she learns a very special secret about a very special Shepherd. When a dreadful accident hurts one they love, Ruth and Philip learn that the Tanglewoods' Secret isn't meant to be kept a secret.

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.

    I was disappointed with the revised version. The story is beautiful and touching but the language is plain and tasteless. I really would like to buy the original version if there is any. I home school my 10 year old and I really would like her to be immersed in a more in-depth literature with Christian value. I am a first generation immigrant and English is my second language. If I am discontented, I wonder how other people could appreciate the abridged version.

    I used this book as a read aloud for my 10 year old son, and we both loved it! It is a wonderful story of friendship, coming to faith, and love in action. Each chapter left my child begging me to read "just one more". We enjoyed it so much that I purchased an additional copy for a gift.

    Ruth lives with her Aunt, Uncle & bother Phillip while her parents are away in India. Ruth struggles with anger and laziness, this short story is about her overcoming her anger and laziness when she finds out about the "Good Shepherd". A great read perfect for just about any age. I love children's books and this is one that's been added to my 'favorites' list.

    Ruth tries to get out of every chore possible and when she does actually get a chore done she only does it halfheartedly, half dried dishes, sweeping everything under the rug...

    Ruth & her brother meet a young boy, Terry while playing out in the woods one day. They grow to love the boy and they all become great friends & play together all the time.

    One day in a rage Ruth 'runs away'. She tires after 3 miles or so and ends up sleeping in a cold empty church. In the morning she is found by the clergyman and he shares the gospel with her. That the beginning of her journey of following the Good Shepherd. She returns home and apologizes to her aunt for her behavior and for running away. She diligently begins reading her Bible and starts to learn to heed the voice of the Shepherd when the temptation of laziness or anger came up. With work she becomes a new girl and everyone notices the difference in her life.

    An accident happens and the boy, Terry becomes very sick and will never be able to play again. He is stuck in bed everyday living with his mother in a small, dark and stuffy cottage until one day Ruth's Aunt goes and visits him and invites Terry & his mother to come and live in her home. Terry & his mother moves in with Ruth and the family. Terry is cared for there by everyone and passes away. Ruth struggles with understanding death and why the Lord didn't heal Terry but took him to heaven instead. A local christian shepherd is able to explain to her the Terry's life here on earth was over and it was all part of the Lords plan.

    Towards the end of the book Ruth's parents come home, just in time for Christmas. It ends with a wonderful Christmas celebration inviting several injured children to come and celebrate with them. This book was an easy and fun read that any child would love! The gospel is taught throughout the book in a very child-friendly way.
