Reviews - What do customers think about Star of Light?

entertaining, sweet, sad, thoughtful, and wonderful!  Feb 14, 2006
This is the story of a father-less boy named Hamid, who went on a journey to save his little, blind sister from danger and a life of sorrow, darkness, and unhappiness. As Hamid embarks on this journey, the outcome is a life of freedom, the joy of seeing his sister happy and unharmed, and the Everlasting Love of God. The author shows her knowledge of God and preaches through a kind nurse who gives shelter to poor African children (and adults!). This book makes you think of the misfortune of others, and to see the little things in life that bring great joy. I would recomend this book no matter what.
It will keep you entertained  Dec 8, 2005
Star of Light was one of those books that you can't put down until the end. Sometimes you can predict what will happen but most of the time you will be surprised. This story is about a happy family who lives in North Africa, but after the father dies the mother gets re-married to a mean guy. They find out their littlest baby girl, Kinza, is blind so the mean stepfather says she is no good and they will have to sell her to the old beggar man in town. The mother is very upset so she tells her oldest son Hammid to run away with the baby. They have to carefully find their way to a kind missionary's house while the evil stepfather is after them.

This book will give you an idea of life in the streets, in a missionary's home, and as a blind girl in long ago times. The ending is happy, but not so happy that you think, "well that was totally unrealistic." I think the author is very talented and kids of all ages will enjoy this book, whether it is read aloud to them or they read it themselves. Boys and girls will like it equally because there are two main characters, one's a boy and one's a girl.

If you want to find out more READ THE BOOK!
A Touching Story  Jul 28, 2005
This book is exciting and will catch your attention. It also shows a common boy showing true love to his sister, by risking his life for hers.
Star Of Light Book Review  Mar 11, 2004
Star Of Light is an adventurous book of fiction. It was written by Patricia St John and published by Moody Press in 2002. All 158 pages are filled with dangerous exitment.

In Star Of Light there are two main characters Hamid, a brave and kind person and his sister Kinza, who is a blind girl who loves life. They live in the deasert plains of Africa in a small village.

When Kinza and Hamind`s step father decides to sell Kinza to a blind beggar, their mother told Hamid to take Kinza and secretly travel to to a village. Living in the village is and english nurse she said. Surley the nurse sill take Kinza in. When Kinza and Hamid finnaly got to the village, Hte nurse did take Kinza in. She gave her warm food and fresh clothes to wear.

While Kinza and her friend Jenny were walking, Kinza`s step father kidnapped Kinza. Jenny told the nurse and Hamid and her went to get Kinza back. When they returned home Jenny asked why they had bought Kinza back for such a high price. The nurse said, " I love Kinza just like God does, because god loves me, I pour out my love on Kinza.

This book is interesting because so much excitment was going on. The best part was when the nurse told Jenny why she loved Kinza so much. Star Of Light is a very adventurous book that you should read.

Star of Light  May 8, 2000
Star of Light is a beautiful, yet sensitive fictional book (though it seems like non-fiction) . Set in North Africa, this book is about a little boy named Hamid and his blind sister, Kinza. Because Kinza is blind and a girl, a double curse in that part of the world, Hamid's stepfather wants to sell her to a beggar who will use her to make money. But Hamid loves Kinza and is determined to save her from an inevitable life of abuse. So he steals her away and brings her to a strange English nurse who loves all children no matter how they look or what disabilities they have. Truly a spellbinding book. I liked this book because I felt like I was there, in North Africa, years before I was born. If you like this book I would also recommend The Rainbow Garden,also written by Patricia St. John, and The Hidden Jewel.
