Book Review: The Tanglewoods Secret by Patricia St John

The Tanglewoods' SecretThe Tanglewoods' Secret by Patricia St. John

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Audiobook from my sister.

Hm.  We really liked the story of this.  The events in the plot moved the story along, the characters were real - foibles and all. 

The theology was more than a little shaky - pictures of Jesus; we ask for him to "find us" or he won't; the body is just a shell like the husk of a chestnut (eep!). We were able to discuss all of these ideas with the children and show the errors.

The positives here were seeing how lives can change when the focus becomes not oneself but Christ.  We also enjoyed seeing how the different ways Christ described himself could draw different people to himself (Ruth loved the idea of the Good Shepherd while her brother could be drawn by the idea of the fall of the sparrow).
