A Shining Light

I received a complimentary copy of A SHINING LIGHT by Judith Miller from Bethany House.  It is the third book in the Home to Amana series.  Sadly, I haven’t read the others in the series yet, but after finishing this one, I definitely will.

Perhaps you’re wondering how good this book is.  Well, I got home from work and found the book sitting in my mailbox.  It had been a tiring day, so I sat back with a cup of tea and decided to lose myself in a chapter or two before dinner.  Five chapters later, I realized that I really did need to eat.  While I ate, I researched Amana Colonies.  I had never heard of them before.

The Amana Colonies were seven villages “built and settled by German Pietists,” according to Wikipedia.  I researched them some more, and now have a strong urge to visit the tourist attraction of today. 

Back to A SHINING LIGHT, Andrea Wilson is a widow who takes her son, Lukas, to stay with an Amana village.  You will smile, you will sniffle, and you will fall in love with the characters you meet.  You will also crave more knowledge about the Amana Colonies.

In case you’re wondering, I started the book back up as soon as I finished dinner and didn’t stop until I had turned the last page with a sigh.
