Patricia St. John's life is a story in itself but she grew up to become one of the world's best-loved Christian writers for children.


After almost being born in the middle of a storm on the Bay of Biscay it was no surprise to see Patricia's life take twists and turns along the way. She had an adventurous spirit so when the bombs fell during the blitz in London there she was, working as a nurse! When looking after 30 children in a boarding school as housemother her exciting bedtime stories kept the children up! They were later to become her classic stories, Tanglewood's Secret and Treasures of the Snow! When her brother needed her help at his hospital in Morrocco Patricia just jumped on the back of his motorbike and went with him.
Every place that she called home was the inspiration for yet another story that brought children to understand and love their Lord Jesus Christ.


This is an amazing story of a much-loved figure in Christian history. A trailblazer for women, and for Christians everywhere.
