Tietoja tekijästä

Thomas Kinkade was born in Sacramento, California in 1958. He spent one summer on a sketching tour with a college friend and afterwards produced the instructional book, The Artist's Guide to Sketching. The book's success landed the two artists at Ralph Bakshi Studios to create background art for näytä lisää the animation feature, Fire and Ice. After the film, Kinkade began earning a living as a painter and is now one of America's most collected living artists. He has also written numerous books including Lightposts for Living and the Cape Light series. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

"Thomas Kinkade paints a world that people love to have in their homes and long to visit. His paintings reflect our highest hopes and fondest dreams-places of safety and rest in the storms of life, lamp-lit homes that welcome the weary traveler, and beautiful lakes, mountains, and streams that offer places for quiet and reflection. The acclaimed Painter of Light™ takes readers to a more peaceful world, reminding them of God's love and care. In the spirit of the best-selling devotional With Wings Like Eagles, Beside Still Waters brings some of Kinkade's most beautiful paintings together with timeless devotionals that offer a still point in the midst of the hustle and bustle of daily life. A beautiful gift book sure to please those who love the paintings of Thomas Kinkade and who want a meaningful and encouraging devotional."… (lisätietoja)

Beautiful puzzle, with lots of fun details. It was fun to set and not easy.
— Paul
Quality: We received this puzzle secondhand, and the pieces were in great condition. A few pieces were still attached, and I did not have to glue any pieces for repair. Level: Medium-Difficult (toward difficult).

A friend (AC) gifted me this book. It is a collection of quotes on joy (some from Thomas Kinkade and some from other sources) paired with Kinkade's art.

Jack Sawyer, recent hermit after the loss of his wife 2 years past, awkwardly takes in a single mother and her young daughter when their car breaks down near his house in the country. Before long, he's as much in need of Julie's help as she is of his. At the same time, Sam & Jessica Morgan lose their beloved house to a devastating fire. Their marriage is tested in this difficult time, as rebuilding won't be as easy as they hope.

Of the books in the Cape Light series I've read, this was my favorite. The story of Jack and Julie was much more interesting to me than the saga of Sam and Jessica Morgan's tragedy. I don't think that's necessarily because I didn't like the plot arc about the fire, but because I really liked the arc with Jack and Julie. Even moreso, I liked the arc with Jack and Julie's daughter, Kate.

What I found most endearing was that this was not just the development of a relationship between a widower and a single mom, but also the development of a relationship between a father whose son has been estranged for two years and a little girl who steals the not-so-old man's heart. Jack could get a second chance at being both a husband and a father, and it's very sweet. The culmination of that storyline made the entire book worth it.

As for Sam and Jessica, they almost killed my interest in the series in the first book. Fortunately, we're past most of the drama I disliked with them, but I will say some of their annoying quirks reared their heads again. Still, I found the difficulties they go through in this book sadly all too realistic. And while the end of their story might bother some, I think it makes sense within the context of this series.

After reading the first 4 books in the series and averaging 3.5 stars, I decided not to continue with it (which becomes a series of Christmas novels after the first 4 non-holiday books). But I already owned this one, so figured I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did, as I liked it more than the first 4. I'm not sure if I'll read more or not, though. Maybe I'll go back to book #5 if I have time left in the holiday season after I've read all of the Christmas-themed books I have planned. We'll see.
