TITLE: The Tanglewoods’ Secret
AUTHOR: Patricia St. John
From the same author of Star of Light, The Tanglewoods’ Secret is another book that reveals the impact that Jesus Christ has on the characters of the story. This is the first Patricia St. John story we read as a family, and still probably our favorite. It is set in a sort of woodsy rural setting, and I think the young characters appealed to our children because they were simple, liked being outside, and sort of crafty.
The story centers around two siblings that encounter a new playmate that is somewhat mysterious at first and somewhat off-putting. But the story of redemption taking place amongst children is exciting and powerful in its portrayal of Jesus’s impact on people’s hearts.
