Item description for By the Light of a Thousand Stars (The Derby Series #3) by Turner Jamie Langston...

Beyond the Sorrow, Belief Awaited.... Catherine had vowed long ago to be the kind of mother she'd never known herself, but somewhere along the way things became muddled. One by one her three children rebelled, leaving her outwardly perfect family in disarray. As if their household isn't disrupted enough, Catherine's strange sister-in-law moves in--uninvited. Into the chaos steps a new neighbor, as different from Catherine as any woman could be. Catherine is both appalled and fascinated by the unique way Barb's family interprets life's trials, and she is inexplicably drawn to them. When tragedy strikes, she finds herself longing to discover the secret to their joyful, contented lives. A Christy Award Finalist

Reviews - What do customers think about By the Light of a Thousand Stars (The Derby Series #3)?

Love it!  Nov 30, 2009
I love this book and this author. A story about dealing with everyday life. I love this writer for the depth of her characters.
Loved It!  Aug 23, 2009
I just finished this today, and it was the first book I read by this author, but it certainly won't be the last. I wonder how she even thought of such a good southern name as "Della Boyd Biddle", and in true southern tradition, she was almost always addressed as "Della Boyd". Catherine was delightful with her outspoken "all about me" persona. Then there were Eldeen, and Hardy, and the twins, all such unique and well developed characters. I loved the characters, and the story.
Realistic, Inspiring Book!  Jul 12, 2009
By the Light of a Thousand Stars (The Derby Series #3)
I have read 3 of Turner's books, and so far this one is my favorite! Her realistic portrayal of relationships and writing from different perspectives allowed me to identify with all the characters in the story. I greatly appreciated the way she proved that God's love doesn't ever fail--it's so true! And of course, the humorous antics of the teenagers kept the story entertaining. :) What I appreciate about her books is that they are so Biblical, realistic, and convicting (I always end up seeing some flaw in myself through her characters). This book impacted and inspired me to never give up on others, because nothing is impossible with God.
I Loved This Book!!!  May 22, 2008
Alot of people find Jamie's books hard to read but of all of them this one flowed the best. She got to the point and I really cared about the characters. I was so happy to see all my favorites especially Magaret
(Some Wildflower in My heart) and of course Eldeen. Jamie's books always make me remember God's grace and how He can work on the coldest hearts. I recommend this book.
Great Book!  Apr 26, 2005
This was book was about several women and how two of them came to know Christ.

First, there is Catherine. She can be such a mean-spirited, outspoken woman, to the point where she doesn't care who she hurts. No wonder her husband wants little to do with her and her kids don't respect her.

Then there is the eccentric Della Boyd, who comes to stay with the Biddles after a fire destroys her home.

Then there is the level headed Barb, who was wild in her younger day, until she comes to Christ.

I really enjoyed the characters. It was easy to see how Catherine came to be so mean. But then something happens that changes Catherine. And I loved how the author showed Catherine's pain and anguish over that incident and how that changed her attitude towards her kids.

And I loved Della Boyd. She raised her younger brother (Catherine's husband), got her teaching degree, and bent over backwards to help out Catherine, even though Catherine acted so mean to her.

I liked the friendship type of evangelism shown by Barb and her family. They reached out to everybody in the Biddle family. That was neat how the Biddles were eventually turning towards Christ and coming together as a family

A very good and interesting book.
