More About Patricia M. St John
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 1950s 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.
Reviews - What do customers think about Treasures of the Snow (Patricia St. John Books)?
Treasures of the Snow Jan 18, 2007
Excellent book for children, best for ages 5 to 16. Rich character development, adventure, strong hero models, and delightful reading. I have read Patricia St. John's books for years, and given countless copies as gifts. A great choice for parents to read with their children. (I'm an educator of children.)
Excellent! Aug 29, 2006
I loved this book. I have never read one that is better. It was a great example of how we should forgive and also showed how love casts out fear. I love how it shows the characters' feelings. It was a very good book.
Forgiveness Oct 28, 2004
Two characters struggle with the difficult task of forgiveness. A young girl must forgive the town bully for his misdeeds that resulted in her brother being crippled. The town bully must find a way to forgive himself.
I Can't Recommend it enough! Apr 27, 2003
When I was 9 years old I read this book. I didn't remember much about the story, but when I saw it in a book store all the warm feelings came flooding back, and I bought it to read to my daughters.
They have so enjoyed it! Our oldest is 8, and our youngest is 5, and we've had a difficult time getting the 5-year-old to sit through "chapter books". But she was enthralled from the start, especially because of the cat and the kittens!
It's a gentle story that depicts the love of Jesus in a simple way, without forcing it. It's just part of life, exactly as it's supposed to be.
A beautiful story that I'm sure my daughters will carry with them, too!
A Very Good Book, Dumbed Down Feb 6, 2003
This is a very good book. The author is obviously indebted to Johanna Spyri's Heidi, but in a good way. This book can be read aloud to children as young as 5, but young teenagers will also enjoy it. Be aware, though, that St. John's original text is out of print. What Moody and Scripture Union currently publish is an "updated" version--good if your child struggles with reading; but if your child is literate, get a used copy!
