The real strength of the series the quality of the writing -it is so engaging. Browsing through the chapters I had to tear myself away from each paragraph I set my eyes on.
For too long our children have often had to put up with second best in their reading of Christian literature. Good intentions are not enough, but here we have books that conform to the best standards of secular reading and are excellent exemplars of Christian living and challenge.
If you buy one of these as a present for somebody be careful not to get it dog-eared, or better still buy two! Teachers please note that these would serve as a good basis for Christian oriented assemblies.
It's a wonderful series. Irene Howat writes with a real warmth and insight. People that you have never met come alive on the page. Christian legends and unsung heroes all become friends you can understand and look up to. In a world where role models of real integrity are few and far between the Lightkeeper's series fills the gap!
