’A time to be born, and a time to die,’ Cassie heard the voice at her husband’s funeral intone. A time to be born she could understand. Even now the child, hers and Rob’s, struggled within her body. Young, eager, optimistic, Rob and Cassie Quinn had joined the bands of immigrants whole and hungry and wooed by the promise of ’the cheapest and also some of the best land in the world’ were converging on the vast Northwest Territories. But a time to die, Cassie couldn’t comprehend. At least not until their children and grandchildren grew content in the fulfillment of the dreams she and Rob had for them! ’A time to weep, and a time to laugh,’ the voice continued. Her heart felt as empty as the vast sky overhead. Would she ever laugh again? What dreams are left for Cassie and her unborn baby after her laughter has died? Paper.

Ruth Vogt Glover was born and raised in Canada’s central Saskatchewan bush country, of which she writes in this in-spirational frontier romance novel, The Shining Light. ’The book is placed in the small farms of Donny-brook, the school district where I was bornnear Mac-dowall and Prince Albert,’ she explains. ’It was a hard life for adults, but for me as a child it was close to bliss. It is a wonderful place.’ The author moved to Vancouver, Wash., in her late teens. It was in Vancouver she met Hal Glover, who fin-ished his term in the Army and married Ruth in 1940. The couple attended Pasadena College (now Point Loma Nazarene College) together, where Rev. Glover earned a master of arts degree. He has pastored churches in California and the northwestern United States for many years, while Mrs. Glover has pursued her love of Christian writing. That love has resulted in contributions to over 50 Christian publications, including the Christian Standard, Decision, the Herald of Holiness, Home Life, Light and Life, the National Christian Reporter, Standard, the Sunday Digest, Vital Christianity, War Cry, and the Wesleyan Advocate.
