Reader reviews:

Found – A Heroine Like Ishmael

“For all Lamplighter readers who loved Ishmael – Here is his female counterpart! I spent a rainy weekend with this courageous, humble, virtuous character and finished with a feeling of gratitude for once again finding a character worthy of emulation. This is a page turner that will leave you wanting more. I loved Pearle, she’s my new favorite!” — Nicole Kawawaki, Washington State

“This story was so surprising to me. I haven’t read fiction in quite a while and this was my first book club delivery. To say that it far exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. I just couldn’t stop reading it.  As a homeschooling mom of 4 kiddos under 13, I have little free time, but this book showed me that momma needs to invest in more reading time for my own pleasure. Thanks for unlocking my imagination and thirst for great literature.” — Chiana of Philadelphia, PA

Refine my faith as gold in a fire

When I began to read A Lost Pearle, I was in a considerably unhappy mood. Waking thoughts and nightly dreams about a recent heartbreaking event troubled me. Could I have done things differently? Was it my fault? Was God even using this circumstance for the good? At times I thought that he was, but that morning, for the first time, I wished it had never happened. As I began A Lost Pearle, I was surprised by some striking similarities between myself and Pearle. She faced, in some ways, very similar emotions, fears, and choices to those I had been through. My attention was immediately caught. I found myself unable to put down the book. What would happen to Pearle, and how could God possibly turn her circumstances for the good?

My attitude reached a decisive turning point when Pearle, after all the unhappiness and trying circumstances she had been through, said that none of it had been wasted time! It was all used to make her into a better person, more dependent upon the Lord, and more sympathetic toward others. Though her faith in God was not often mentioned, the few times when it was mentioned were like light bulbs in my mind. Wow. If Pearle’s faith enabled her to go through so much and yet forgive, love, and be willing to trust again, how much more can I trust the Lord to help me through my pain? He will bring me through, and he will use the experience to refine my faith as gold in a fire.
