    1. I really enjoyed this book, it had everything a good book has and grabbed my interest from the first page. Right from the beginning the reader becomes involved with Andrea and her son. What an energetic boy he is too, so full of questions and curiosity! When Andrea learns her husband was lost at sea she is both happy and sad and sets out to start a new life on her fathers farm. But what waits for her there is both a surprise and a disappointment. She soon sees God's hand at work and finds there [...]


    2. I find the Amana colonies enthralling and everything I know about them is courtesy of this amazing author and her incredible research skills. I really enjoyed viewing the colonies through Andrea's eyes -- as an outsider looking in. I struggled right along with her as she tried to find a place to belong. Miller has crafted a compelling story of loss and hope in the midst of a fascinating setting.


    3. My Take:3.5 Stars!Christian Fiction341 pages of enjoyable reading pleasure!It is 1890, and as we read in the description of this book, Andrea, abused and abandoned from her husband ends up getting s a visit (I presume it was from the captain of the ship) with news for her. He had some bad news for her, or was it good news given what he liked to do to her? Supposedly while her husband was working on their ship out at sea, he has now been lost at sea, presumed dead. There was no question about it, [...]


    4. Home to Amana Book 3: A Shining LightApril 27, 2014 3:10pmMy review on A Shining Light, Book 3 of the Amana series is written on the late side of April. I wanted to read the complete series of Amana before I wrote my personal view.A Shining Light is the 3rd and final book the Home to Amana Series and is written by Judith Miller, published by Bethany House. I have read other books by Judith Miller and I really enjoy her books.The representation of the book cover does catch your attention and make [...]


    5. I have finished reading A Shining Light written by Judith Miller. A Shining Light is a Christian Fiction, it was also a hard book for me to read. Not because of the way it is written, it is hard to read because of the story. A little information I will give away is, her husband wasn't nice. I didn't give much away because you will find out about her husband in the beginning of the book. I found this book decently written, the Author wrote the book in three different point of views and it wasn't [...]


    6. When presented with the opportunity to review A Shining Light I agreed to do so primarily because I have never read a historical novel based on the Amana Colony in the 1890s. Knowing that Judith Miller researches well when she writes, I looked forward to this romp in historical fiction amongst the Amana colonists. Since I knew virtually nothing about the Amana Colony, I did a bit of my own internet research prior to beginning my read. So as the story unfolded, it came to life for me. (Overview o [...]

    11.

When she arrives, she learns that her father sold his farm to a nearby Amish colony, and that he and the proceeds of the sale perished in a fire shortly thereafter. The Amish extend an offer to Andrea and her young son to live with the communa [...]


    12. A Shining Light by Judith Miller is the third and final book in the Home to Amana series. I really enjoyed this last book. It was a different plot, and I loved hearing more about how people lived back then. Each book in the series is a stand alone novel, and if you enjoy reading Amish fiction then you will definitely like these books. I'm a historical fiction nut who likes some Amish fiction, and it was perfect for me. :-)Andrea Wilson has just found out her husband died at sea. With a seven yea [...]

    14. I would give this book a 3.5 rating. First off the cover is beautiful! One thing I really enjoyed about this book was that the storyline started immediately.

It was wonderful to see her grow her faith and find redemption. The author does a great job at de [...]

    19. I have mixed feelings about A Shining Light by Judith MIller. It was too predictable for me. While it did have some really good spiritual applications throughout the story and it showed people learning to trust in God more and more I would have rather seen this book take a different direction.*Spoiler* This book was too neatly wrapped up and tied with a bow, leaving me feeling like something was missing. I would have rather seen the heroine reconciled with her husband and him coming to faith in [...]

    22. When I saw that Judith Miller had a new book, and again about the Amana Community, I knew I had to read it. So when the opportunity was offered to review this book, a hearty yes! I was not disappointing, only that it eventually ended, makes me want to live there, if it still existed!As always we get to see the hard workers and yet the peace and rewards of communal living, and although it ended with the changes of society, it looks like one big family, with everyone caring for one another.This is [...]
