Where The River Begins by Patricia M.

John writes with a real knowledge of what a children who find themselves in trouble are like. It is realistic, and yet extremely hopeful. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 16 years ago. I think the book is warm and shows some interesting aspects of real life and how much Jesus can change our hearts through love. I specially like the picture of Jesus being the spring of water that changes everything where it flows into green.

A later, more risky book by Patricia St. Containing a troubled boy getting involved with violent friends, a mother who ends up in a psychiatric hospital, and a stepdad who is discovered to be seeing another woman, this book might scare off a few parents. But the moral tone is excellent, and all details are appropriate for a young audience. Francis learns about the source of love and righteousness from a foster family. mebrock Sep 9, 2008.

The stories written by Patricia St. John may say they are for young readers (grade school through high school), but they hold a realism in the problems of life and the assurance of eternal life that it holds one's attention even if you're in your 20's or 50's. As a family of adults, Patricia's stories have not gotten "beneath" us. We either remember well the difficulties of our own childhood, our our children's, or simply enjoy the way that Miss St. John wove a tale that convinces us that we're hearing something close to the heart. Though firmly based upon a Scriptural foundation, the author did not sugar coat the problems one encounters in 20th or 21st century families. Nor did she offer easy solutions to the problems troubled families face by writing "If you just believe in Jesus, all your troubles will go away." That is what makes her stories so gripping: they are realistic, touch the heart, and show that, even in an imperfect, fallen world, Christ is the answer.
Siblings Philip and Ruth live with their somewhat particular Aunt Margaret while their parents are in India.The brother and sister are avid bird watchers; make a wigwam of branches, honeysuckle and bracken; and laugh over the antics of a wayward, orphaned lamb whom a kind old shepherd cares for. Ruth's temper causes her many sorrows until she meets the Good Shepherd--who cares for her like the shepherd did the orphan lamb--and shows her the way to joy. This book is not jam-packed with violence, aliens and "cool" talk. It is timeless; a homey, inviting story which reminds children and adults alike that life's joys are not found in a continual persuit of media entertainment, amusement parks and quest for excitement. Rather, true joy is found following Christ, the Great Shepherd of the sheep; and learning the lessons found in His Word and the beauties of His creation. Read aloud to children 6 years and up, or read along by 8 year olds and up--it is necessary and thoughtful reading for young and old alike.
These children's books by Patricia St. John are absolutely wonderful. These books are character building and filled with both the joyful wonder and difficult challenges of real life from the perspective of children, some from different countries. They are filled with positive values and opportunities to think about choices, consequences, and what kind of person will you become. I highly recommend them. The children in her stories are usually ages 8-12. Have fun reading them together.
I bought this book because we read "Treasures of the Snow" by the same author (Patricia St.John)which was loved by every member of our family. This book was good too, but took a few chapters to capture, my children's full interest, where they didn't want to stop reading. It wonderfully weaves the love of our Savior, the Good Shepherd,into the story without being preachy. Some parts of the book talk about types of flowers. This is like Greek to my children and if you don't have an interest flowers, minds tend to wander. The story is about two children(a brother and sister) living with their aunt. It mostly focuses on the girl and her overcoming her selfishness and bad temper by meeting the Good Shepherd. Overall it is worth reading and I will continue to seek out this author's books.
I should have been more aware that this is a revised version "for modern readers". What, are we dumber or something that we can't comprehend Patricia St. John's original text?????? I have LOVED the story from childhood, but the charm is lost in this revision. Same for the other revised versions of her stories.
I am delighted with Patricia St. John's books for children. Although they are meant to keep the attention of a child, they contain lessons that will also touch the heart of an adult. They teach life lessons in easy to understand ways and communicate clearly the love of God for everyone. I have read a lot of books to my child, some that I enjoy more than others. This one I always looked forward to reading. It shares the struggles of a 9 year old main character to rise above her fiery temper and selfish nature and let the Good Shepherd change her heart. A treasure!

My daughter read this book and loved it.
We read Treasures of the Snow first, and that was a great book with a clear plot and interesting characters that were tempted in the ways that many kids are. After that book, this book was a huge disappointment. We homeschool, and we typically discuss plot and things as we're going through the book, but this book really has very little plot to it (which was tough for my learning son). If you had to pick one thread, it would be that the girl wants to be good, but can't make herself be good. And eventually she understands that God can help her do the right thing. While I agree totally with that theology, the book did a terrible job at making that point really clear and meaningful. The characters just kind of wander through situations, and are very thin. And be aware - at the end of the book, the friend dies, although it is presented as an answer to her prayer that God would bring an end to his pain. I wish we hadn't bothered with this one.
