Reviews - What do customers think about Keeper of the Light?
In Remembrance Aug 29, 2008
I was excited to find a copy that was signed by the author, as she is no longer with us, on May 14, 2003, after a fourteen year battle with cancer she went to be with her Lord and Savior. I had the wonderful privilege of meeting her in High School. She talked to my class about the process of writing and publishing a book. I recommend this book to everyone. I have read it several times and have been encouraged by different things in it every time I have read it.
Enjoyable read Nov 29, 2007
I bought this book after reading "Lights of the Veil" by Patty Metzer. I really enjoyed both books. I disagree with the previous review, and believe that it demonstrated the difference God can make in a person's life. One character struggled with his Christian walk and what it means to act a Christian and the other learned to be a Christian by example and her life was greatly improved because of it. I enjoy Patty Metzer's writing style and have looked for more of her books--and have been disappointed in not finding any.
Romance novel with "God" thrown in Aug 5, 2006
I found this to be too much of a romance novel. The girl was not honest with him and secretive once they were married. I found myself annoyed by the behavior of both of the characters. This very much reads like a secular romance novel with "God" thrown in here and there.
Also, I did not consider the writing of superior quality either. I'm surprised that this was recommended to me by a Christian person. But I guess that goes to show where Christianity is headed.
Sweet, inspirational, romantic Mar 20, 1999
This book is a definite page turner. I enjoyed its late 1800s Cape Cod setting. It was a love story as well as the story of two young peoples' search for God. I would highly reccomend it.
