This is a must read to get you in the spirit of Christmas. It revolves around three individuals, Miranda, Molly, and Ben. Miranda falls in love with a man with amnesia; Molly becomes pregnant just when her business is growing and her children our teenagers; and Ben, a clergyman who's faith is tested when a statute of an Angel is found in the basement of the church. You have to have faith that God will see us through the challenges that we face.

My first time reading this author. This book had 3 different story lines going on simultaneously all with a Christmas theme. A nice read. It reminds us of the spirit of Christmas, friendship , forgiveness and friendship.

I am reading my way through the Cape Light series. The Christmas Visitor is a very warm and easy Christmas story. Thomas Kinkade is as good an author as he is a painter. I’m enjoying these books very much.

In "A Christmas Visitor", the people of Cape Light are in for all kinds of surprises:
1.) Miranda, granddaughter of Sophie Potter, finds an unconscious man in the orchard;
2.) Molly and Matt Harding are expecting a baby (Molly has 2 daughters from a previous marriage and Matt has a daughter from a former marriage also);
3.) Carl Tulley and Rev. Ben Lewis find a statue of an angel in the basement of the church.

Miranda is walking the dog, Dixie, out in the orchard whe

a Christmas Visitor: a Cape Light Novel
by Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer

Once again, this book appears to be part of a series which I may or may not have encountered before. In this instance though, I found that I fell in love with the small New England town and its people and it was clear to me why folks might go back for more.

Basically, there are three stories which comprise this book. One is of Molly, a recently remarried woman who learns that she is pregnan

Nice story to read around Christmas time. It was predictable and didn't have any turn of events, but overall was a easy and nice read.

To gear up for the Christmas season, I have begun by reading another in the Cape Light series. Although fictional, it touches something real within me.

I won't give the story away by narrating it here in this review, but I will say that Katherine Spencer deserves an award for the display of genius exhibited in every book in the Cape Light novels. Thomas Kinkade's artwork shown on the jacket of each book contributes so much.

This series is the product of two geniu

I always enjoy a "Cape Light" novel by Thomas Kinkade. The continuing stories take place in a Norman Rockwell kind of small town with enough human conflict to make them interesting. It's my literary "guilty pleasure". After all, I was a baby and young child of the 50's, and it's kind of nice to read a book occasianally without edgy, weird characters and story lines.

Thomas Kincaide's books are like his paintings and his paintings are like his books. They are charming, romantic and picturesque. He puts into words what people are feeling. I really enjoyed being in "his world". He sounds just like I pictured him to be.

Nothing deep here, just another cozy little christmas story that actually reads like real life - jealousy, disappointment, suspicion, love, trust, luck. This was my first "visit" to Cape Light and you know, I liked it, I really liked it. Maybe I'll visit again....

This was the first Cape Light book I read, and I would read the others to get a better background. It was easy to follow, but it kept me wondering where it was going. A wonderful holoday read!
