Recommended for ages 8-11
The Tanglewoods’ Secret is one of Patricia St John’s classic, timeless fiction books for children aged 8–11 years approximately. It is a beautifully crafted story with relateable characters, adventures and antics set within the realities of life that captivate the reader immediately. It combines excellent storytelling and commendable literary skills with Christian teaching. The Gospel is woven throughout the book as Ruth and Philip, staying with their Aunt Margaret and Uncle Peter while their parents are held up in India due to the War, meet other characters in the book ~ Terry their friend who gets badly injured and dies, Mr Tandy the shepherd who reads from his New Testament, Mr Robinson the Vicar who talks about the Good Shepherd ~ introducing the need for God’s forgiveness. I have enjoyed this book as an adult as it entertains, challenges, confronts and comforts. A great read for any age actually that raises an inescapable question for all ~ “Where’s home?”
A wonderful story with a lesson inside. Being angry is something we all experience and this book teaches us to pray to God and ask for help.
