Don't Hesitate to Read These Books! May 6, 2007
I have read several books by Thomas Kinkade of this Cape Light series, including this one. While they are all related, you can pick up a random one and very easily know what is going on as the author will review the characters. I've read them out of sequence but it's been very easy to follow along. This one I especially enjoyed as I loved the flashbacks to Lillian's life. I guess the only thing I don't understand is that Lillian runs away against her parents' wishes to marry Oliver, and in another book in the series, her daughter Jessica marries someone against her wishes. You'd think she'd be more tolerant after what she went through with the estrangement from her parents.
I'd love to live in a town this close where everyone cares about each other and steps in when they are needed. While I'm not overly religious myself, these books have just enough religion in them that you don't feel like you're in church or being preached to. It's just comforting.....don't hesitate to read any of these books.
great book Jan 15, 2007
I have read all of Thomas Kinkadebooks. this book is one of the best.
Another Great Tale from quaint Cape Light Jan 9, 2007
Each book in this series features a different character in the quaint little New England town just North of Boston called Cape Light. Each story brings those characters to life, so you feel like you've gone back home to visit all your friends and relatives again. This particular story zeroes in on Lillian Warwick, the fiesty, often sarcastic grandmother of Emily, the town's mayor. She isn't your typical "warm, cuddly grandmotherly" type, that's for sure, but in this episode she's fallen down the attic stairs trying to retrieve a box of old photos and letters that are very precious to her. She winds up in the hospital, and needs a cast on one arm and one leg. As she's home recovering from her injuries the holiday season approaches. She does a lot of reminiscing about her youth as she re-reads those old letters and looks at the photos. The story keeps flashing back to the 1950's when she was a young woman, and you gain insight into this character's past. At the same time, you're enjoying all the preparations being made for the current holiday season, getting reacquainted with what's going on in the lives of all your other Cape Light friends. An excellent read, during the holiday season or any other time of the year. If you've read and enjoyed the previous Cape Light stories, you'll enjoy going back for another visit in the pages of this book. The last couple of pages get just a little too sappy for my taste, but otherwise - a truly excellent read!!
Cape Light Series is the best! Jan 9, 2007
I love the Cape Light series! This book is great!!!
Delightful Kinkade/Spencer Book Jan 5, 2007
Cape Light is a charming, friendly town filled with believable characters who lead normal, yet interesting lives. Although a work of fiction, these stories bring a feeling of home-coming the moment I open one of their books. Great fire-side reading for those of us who like enjoyable, clean, and posative Christian fiction. The romantic attractions of the book's characters makes it a great alternative to all who are tired of the usual romantic fiction, plus the Kinkade/Spencer series offer a bonus of having thought-provoking situations and Christian ethics included to give us something to mull on long after the last page of each novel.
