A Light in the Window



My review:
A Light in the Window is a prequel to Julie's other books, which center around the O'Connor Family.  This is the story of how Marceline Murphy and Patrick O'Connor, met and fell in love.
What I loved about this story:  I have always admired Marcy in Julie's books, as the matriarch of the family, she was a stable and wonderful character.  She has an unshakable faith, and is not ashamed to share her love of the Lord.  She works hard and easily inspires others to do their best.
What I did not like about this story:  There is a lot of violence in the book, lots of domestic violence, and lots of mention of drunkenness and bar visiting.  These things really didn't add anything to the story for me. 
Conclusion:  Even though there were things I did not like, I really enjoyed hearing the story of Marcy and Patrick.  I am glad this author has brought us the prequel to the other stories.  A great story, written in true Julie Lessman style.  Definitely worth the time to read!  198 pages, E-book only, 4.5 stars
