Mini Review: Night Light

Today's mini review will be on Night Light by Terri Blackstock.

The Branning family is beginning to adjust to life with out technology, and growing closer as a result of the constant time spent together. But then one day they find thieves in the house. Two boys are robbing them of their food. They soon discover that the boys are the oldest of four kids left alone for months. Should they take them in? Where is their mother?

A mystery novel this ain't. While there are some mystery like plot threads, the climax was a let down.

Fortunately, I was reading it for other reasons. And watching these characters grow as they struggle with living a Christian life in their current trial was very entertaining. In fact, I could hardly put the book down waiting to see what would happen next.

I am quite anxious to move on to book three in this series.
