Patricia St John was a master storyteller and her books continue to captivate readers even today, but her personal story is no less exciting than one of her fictional tales.
It is full of adventure, larger-than-life characters and exotic destinations. But this isn’t some unimaginable far-flung lifestyle – central to her story is the work of God in her life and in the lives of those she met. This is her story, told in her own words and in her characteristically engaging and gripping style.
Discover the inspiration behind Patricia’s classic tales and be challenged by her commitment to service, her desire to make Jesus known and her willingness to follow God wherever He leads.
I knew little about Patricia St John before reading this but now I am a massive fan. She describes her life (even including how her parents got together) in a very accessible yet gripping style,filled with acts of amazing faith and courage. Living at times in London, Coventry, Malvern, and North Wales, there are parts of her life which are familiar and others (in Morocco and Lebanon) which are unknown. But the constant thread is Patricia’s faith and obedience in our amazing God and an unstoppable passion to share God’s love with all people. I cannot recommend it enough.
I am glad Jonathan Carswell talked me into buying this. I can’t remember reading a biography where so much happens. To think that before I picked up this book, I had simply known Patricia St John as a Christian children’s author (which she is). But what we find in the pages of this well written (of course!) autobiography is the account of a life totally committed to the Lord and to sharing the good news of the Gospel, wherever the Lord led her. Exciting, moving, encouraging and inspiring, I highly recommend this book to all of you.
