All Is Bright by Katherine Spencer
A box of old photographs sparks long forgotten memories for Reverend Ben, images of himself when he was a young minister, a newcomer to Cape Light and his congregation. He remembers the very first Christmas at his new church, when nothing turned out as he expected. A prominent church member and benefactor, Oliver Warwick, stood accused of a serious crime, and the entire town and congregation were quickly torn apart. Ben knew that he must carry the banner of God's love and mercy into the fray, all the while struggling to win his church's confidence and respect and prove to all-including himself-that he was worthy of his calling as a minister.

A box of old photographs sparks long forgotten memories for Reverend Ben, images of himself when he was a young minister, a newcomer to Cape Light and his congregation. He remembers the very first Christmas at his new church, when nothing turned out as he expected. A prominent church member and benefactor, Oliver Warwick, stood accused of a serious crime, and the entire town and congregation were quickly torn apart. Ben knew that he must carry the banner of God’s love and mercy into the fray, all the while struggling to win his church’s confidence and respect and prove to all—including himself—that he was worthy of his calling as a minister.
As her father looks back, Rachel Anderson looks to the future, trying to imagine a life without her beloved husband, Jack. But then, single-dad Ryan Cooper appears on her doorstep like an unexpected package. Her son’s basketball coach is just the man Rachel needs to shake up her world and show her there’s such a thing as focusing—and fretting—too much. Ryan’s gentleness, charm, and understanding are a convincing combination, and Rachel soon finds herself imagining a new world filled with hope and love. But deep loss and old fears are not so easily dispelled, and Christmas brings Rachel a serious choice: cling to a past filled with comforting memories, or reach for a future of bright possibilities.

Tarheel24Rock Hill, SCAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5All Is BrightNovember 22, 2014Tarheel24Rock Hill, SCAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Having read all the Cape Light series, I was pleased that All Is Bright focused on Reverend Ben and his daughter Rachel. At first it was difficult to follow Rev. Ben's first Christmas as pastor and the preparations for the current Christmas. But after several chapters, I did not want to put this book down. Reading about the Warwick family and how Rev. Ben was able to provide the support they needed in time of crisis provided new information about residents of Cape Light that had not been revealed previously. And you will find the story of Rachel dealing with the loss of her husband while caring for her children and the possibility of new hope and new love very well written.
