Shining A Light
This Arcadia Valley collection has produced some wonderful stories that are linked by characters, food and the theme of sustainability. This novel concentrates on good food, locally produced and sourced, with one eye very much on the carbon footprint. We have a duty of care to look after God’s earth. With much of Cookies And Candlelight set in a bakery, the reader has their taste buds tempted by all the baked goodies.
Elizabeth Maddrey has produced warm and wonderful characters that just lodge themselves in the reader’s heart. There is a fabulous family atmosphere and the reader ‘feels’ included in the action.
