    Minding The Light has one thing going for it; it’s impeccably researched. That research is all that saves the book from being a complete waste of time. Instead of enlightenment or joy, the main sensation one feels while reading the book is one of painful awkwardness.   Minding the light: Christ is the cornerstone, following Him in all of your life even when then decisions are difficult. Other Notes (Optional): Also contains: the first chapter of the next book in the series-historical notes-book discussion questions.

How could I have given her so little in return?". Minding the Light. Written by Suzanne Woods Fisher Review by Sara Dahmen. In this novel of Nantucket life in the 17th century, author Suzanne Woods Fisher fashions a realistic and quiet tale of Daphne Coffin, a Quaker maid, and her surrounding family and in-laws.

    Minding the Light is a compelling continuation of the Nantucket Legacy series! I was delighted by the Nantucket Island setting and pleased to learn more about the history of its Quaker community. Engaging characters and historical details, both real and imagined, add richness and depth to this dual timeframe tale. I especially enjoyed Great Mary’s. Suzanne Woods Fisher is an award-winning, bestselling author of more than two dozen novels, including Phoebe's Light, Minding the Light, and The Light Before Day, as well as the Amish Beginnings, The Bishop's Family, and The Inn at Eagle Hill seri.
