About the Author

Thomas Kinkade emphasized simple pleasures and inspirational messages through his art. Thom believed that both the ability and the inspiration to create his paintings had been given to him as a gift. His goal as an artist was to touch people of all faiths and to bring peace and joy into their lives through the images he created. Katherine Spencer was a fiction editor before turning to a full-time career as a writer. The author of more than thirty books, she also writes the Angel Island series, as well as the Black Sheep Knitting Mysteries under her real name, Anne Canadeo. She lives with her husband and daughter in a small village on the Long Island Sound. Outside of her office, she is active in many community charity projects.

Reviews

Kinkade (Cape Light), the self-titled "Painter of Light" whose mass-produced soft-focus pastoral scenes have found many fans, revisits the idyllic Massachusetts town of Cape Light in this second volume of the Cape Light trilogy. Mayor Emily Warwick faces an election challenge from the local eatery owner, Charlie Bates. College student Sara Franklin wonders whether she should publicly reveal that she is the daughter Emily gave up for adoption after her husband's accidental death. Emily and her sister, Jessica, continue to cope with their difficult, heartless mother, Lillian, who now is in a snit over Jessica's choice of fianc, a pious local handyman named Sam Morgan; according to snobbish Lillian, he's not good enough for her daughter. Meanwhile, Boston ex-cop Luke McAllister moves to Cape Light and tries to redeem his guilt over his partner's death by setting up a halfway house for troubled teens who want to turn their lives around. His efforts force the town into a moral dilemma over accepting outsiders, and the project becomes a pivotal issue in Emily's reelection campaign. Will Emily convince the town to do the right thing? Will Lillian break down and come to Jessica's wedding? Kinkade and Spencer take a simplistic approach to political and family problems, with a considerable dose of Protestant proselytizing. The characters, though pleasant enough, are one-dimensional; it's easy to guess the inevitable happy ending. Those who enjoyed Kinkade's first book will find more of the same here.

Praise for the Cape Light series "[This] modern fairy tale reflects the pastel-tinted idealism of Kinkade's paintings."--Publishers Weekly "You can't help but fall in love with the character in the series."--Splashes of Joy
