Phoebe's Light by Suzanne Woods Fisher

This was a really refreshing read by Suzanne Woods Fisher!  So different and very enthralling.  It was hard to put this one down.

I think I also learned some new historical facts from this book.  I learned many things about the Quakers of Nantucket.  It was a bit mysterious and very engaging as a result.

Reading through an old journal of her Great Mary who lived over 100 years before her, was a part of the book, as Phoebe's ancestor told her story, it becomes a bit mysterious and a blessing to Phoebe in many ways.

It wasn't all "happy" because she has some trials to overcome and many hardships.

This is a very good book and I am sure that you will want to read this one!  It grabbed me from page 1!

  1. Thank you, Sonja, for pointing out the history of Quakers and Nantucket in "Phoebe's Light!" It's always a tricky balance...weaving history in without sounding like a textbook. And glad you liked the journal, too! Grateful for you, Sonja. Warmly, Suzanne
