Présentation de l'éditeur

In the 1940s, the small Pennsylvania town of Haven is rather subdued with their young men facing battles in far-away Europe. Young Andy Gilbert, burdened with his job of delivering telegrams bringing the news of those missing or killed in action, faces the coming holidays with dread and discouragement. With each new message he must deliver- met by screaming mothers, grief-stricken wives, and weeping families--he longs to join the ranks of the numbered dead. Only one elderly woman recognizes the pain and suffering tormenting Andy--and it is through her wisdom that the stars again can shine for Andy and for a town that desperately needs the hope those stars represent. A touching novella book from a bestselling novelist.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Heartwarming historical with a unique twist on love.... 31 décembre 2005
Par Michelle Sutton - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I see the story in a different way than the previous reviewer. Sometimes I think it's a disadvantage to read previous reviews and at other times an advantage. I didn't see the Jesus/Andy theme referred to at all. I believe the author's intention was to show the life of someone who has lost everything (his entire family.) Because of his job delivering telegrams, he lost even the love most people receive as part of everyday life, and more importantly, the human contact people need to feel loved. He was ostracized, which made him bitter toward God, who he believed took his family and left him with nothing but a depressing way of life. Some days he didn't care if he lived anymore. Then in walks the older lady who treats him like a normal person with the need for care and concern, and things start to turn around for him in his heart. I thought it was a beautiful illustration of how the love of one person can change the future of another by instilling hope into the person's life. In regards to how the story was written, I found it a bit blah with two much backstory up front in the very beginning (about his parents) but once the older woman entered the scene it picked up from there and even got my eyes watering at one point (which rarely happens when I read.) It was definitely worth my while, though I probably won't read it again.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Predictably Sweet Story... 26 juillet 2006
Par Mercedes J. - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I finished this book in about 2 hours. It's a sweet little story about a boy (Andy) in 1944 who's lost both of his parents at a very young age, and is burdened with being the bearer of bad news. Andy works for a telegram company, and has the daunting task of delivering war telegrams to the family's of dead/missing soldiers.

Because of his job, the towns people of a small Pennsylvania town have come to fear, and ignore him. They look at him as a curse, and with his parents dead, his loneliness reaches an almost breaking point. But a sweet old widowed woman sees he's in need of a friend, and makes it her mission to turn this young boys life around.

While this was a charming little story, I was surprised at how religious it was. It's not that apparent in the beginning, but by the end of the book, I felt I was practically reading the bible. While that's not necessarily a bad thing, I felt it took away from a story that was already thin. If your looking for a spiritual uplifting, or a light quick read, then I definitely recommend this...but other than that, there's really not much here.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Depth of Emotion 15 mai 2006
Par Valerie Allen - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Silent Star was well written and captured the depth of emotion experienced by those surviving WW II - those at home, waiting and praying. This book explores the impact of war on a typical young man who did not fight in the war but was left to struggle with his own doubts and fears. It offered a glimpse at the positive, spiritual renewal of a soul lost to despair.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Heartwarming and Predictable 24 juillet 2006
Par Julie Norman - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you'd like a quick heartwarming read and don't mind that the end is predictable, then read this book. It's a simple but sweet story about a young man who goes to war in the only way he can. There is a theme of hope and the symbolism of stars interwoven throughout. I appreciated the point of view of the messengers during the war and the things they may have gone through.

The storyline flowed well, though I found myself able to easily put the book down. The characters were simple though there was some attempt at making them more three dimensional. Everything was happily wrapped up at the end, in a Miracle on 34th street sort of way.

Personally I found it a little boring because I don't like predictable stories with two dimensional characters. But I liked the ending of the star symbolism and the writing structure (grammar, etc.) was sound.

I always enjoy reading Tracie's books, this one was no exception. I think most Christian fiction is predictable at times but the story line is always good. For the most part Tracie's stories are realistic. The characters' lives make me evaluate my own thoughts, attitudes, motives, prayer life, etc. I've read many of her books, she's one of my favorite authors and I've enjoyed every one of her books, some more than others. I have to be careful that I don't spend all of my free time reading Christian fiction over my Bible and other Bible studies/helps.
