Normally I don't like reading down to earth, but the summary of this book and the treasure box caught my eye. And I was not disappointed by either. She is a fantastically eloquent author who kept me going from start to finish on this roller coaster ride. And I especially loved all the laughs along the way. I felt so close to the characters and able to laugh with them and see all they saw. Absolutely loved it. Highly recommend Penelope J Stokes as an author.
The Amber Photograph is an excellent read, following the Penelope Stokes standard of mixing past and present, keeping the observer guessing - where the plot of the story is concerned - but always weaving the love of Christ - and the need for HIM - so passionately into her work. This work touches on very deep concerns of today's society, but portrays real people who trust God in ALL circumstances and decisions (moral, ethical, and otherwise) of their daily lives, in contrast to those who do NOT trust God, but follow their own way, and both sow and reap consequent desolation.
Fabulous read. I grew to know and love the characters as friends I did not wish to loose. Highly recommend, even to those who may noy think this is their type of book. Penelope Stokes made a believer out of me!
