Ruth Vogt Glover was born and raised in Canada's central Saskatchewan bush country, of which she writes in this inspirational frontier romance novel, The Shining Light. "The book is placed in the small farms of Donny-brook, the school district where I was born near Mac-dowall and Prince Albert," she explains. "It was a hard life for adults, but for me as a child it was close to bliss. It is a wonderful place." The author moved to Vancouver, Washington in her late teens. It was in Vancouver she met Hal Glover, who finished his term in the army and married Ruth in 1940. The couple attended Pasadena College (now Point Loma Nazarene College) together, where Rev. Glover earned a Master of Arts degree. He has pastored churches in California and in the northwestern United States for many years, while Mrs. Glover has pursued her love of Christian writing. That love has resulted in contributions to 50 Christian publications, including the Christian Standard, Decision, the Herald of Holiness, Home Life, Light and Life, the National Christian Reporter, Standard, the Sunday Digest, Vital Christianity, War Cry and the Wesleyan Advocate.
