Pat Bertram's new novel--Light Bringer--defies classification, but that doesn't mean it isn't a fantastic read. I would characterize Light Bringer as a complex and involving story with elements of mystery, science fiction and adventure novels. The characters are well drawn and the settings, especially those in the desert, are often hauntingly beautiful. Definitely recommended!

Pat Bertram's latest novel grabs you from the first page and holds on! There was no doubt that when that baby girl found her way to the home of Helen Jenks, she would be there to stay. And if that meant that Helen and her little girl would be forced to pick up and relocate on a moment's notice, then that would be what Helen would do to keep her safe.

She knew the child's intelligence was very high, even from the beginning. She didn't speak right away, but she was able to communicate. But nothing prepared Helen for the morning she heard singing--the song spoke of loneliness, of loss, and perhaps of love found, though the child spoke no words. It was the next morning, however, when the child answered "Rena," when asked what she should be called.

Helen was no longer alive when Rena came back home to the town where she had first appeared... At this time she was going by the name of Becka Johnson. She had moved into a little cabin that was known to be haunted. It was only later she would be shown the secret garden in which flowers grew with bright, almost brilliant colors that made all others seem colorless...

At the same time, not too far away, a young man, close in age to Rena, was trying to talk to the two men who had appeared at his door. He was, admittedly, nervous--after all, he did have something to hide. Or, rather, there was something hidden in his apartment. The men claimed they worked for the National Security Agency, but Philip still didn't know what to say. They apparently had not sent it. So finally, in the only way he had thought of, he showed what was there with them...

Only later was Philip pushed out of his apartment and into his car--into the passenger seat.

I was confused right from the beginning and stayed that way to the very end. Some things did come to light, but for the most part this was out of my comfort zone. I gave it a chance as I kept reading and did finish, but I was left with many questions and maybe that was the whole reasoning behind Ms. Bertram's story.

This story had me puzzled from the beginning when a baby shows up on the doorstep of a nurse. No footprints leading away from the house and only a few small ones that leads up to the house. This is not a normal baby as it sings and walks and talks rather fast. The nurse questions things at first but after a few days she just accepts this.

After this young baby reaches adulthood and loses the mother that raised her in hiding, she goes on a quest that brings her to a small town that seems to also be gathering others that are brought here for some reason or other.

Becka Johnson and Philip Hansen are both drawn to Chalcedony, Colorado. Not sure what their connection is to each other either. You also have a UFO hunter and her sister. While the hunter goes missing her sister is questioned by some agency to find out what she knows.

Weird things have been going on around this town since the 70's and UFO sightings. Are they connected? I can't divulge that information.

Outside of town there is a field of brightly colored flowers that sing and house some wonderful displays of light. They make you feel good. Colors play a big part in the story. The universe, hidden secrets, extra planets, invisible beings, theories, physics, astronomy, mythology; a town lost in time where people still sit around playing games such as Chinese checkers.

Becka Johnson comes to Chaceldony Colorado to find her past, only to find a lot of mystery surrounding the town and her origins. Phillip Hanson is hiding out from two shady sorts who claim to be FBI. Jane Keeler is looking for her missing sister, who is researching a book. Throw in a mysterious cat and an invisible force guiding people along. Amongst them are a host of interesting theories about UFOs politics and banking. Bringing them all together is an organization with a huge secret and private agenda.
I highly recommend LIGHT BRINGER as it has all the elements of a great story; Mystery, action, conflict, humor and romance culminating in a happy cohesive ending. Ms. Bertram has woven all this together with likable characters as she does with all her books, making it a thoroughly enjoyable read. I give this story 5 flying saucers.

In Light Bringer, Pat Bertram weaves a fascinating tale of a group of people connected by events in the past, beginning before they were even born, who are inexorably drawn together for the culmination of what was started so many decades before.

When strange things happen people go to Chalcedony. But what is so special about the little town?

Helen Jenks' life changed with a drive home on a snowy night. That change came in the form of an infant girl, who she calls Rena, which she finds abandoned on her doorstep.

It becomes immediately apparent that Rena is not your usual kind of abandoned-on-the-doorstep baby. There is something special about the child. Helen soon finds herself living on the run with the child, but on the run from who or what?

And that is where her story ends and the real story begins.

Philip Hansen opens his door to unexpected guests, Agent's Derrick and Hugh from the National Security Agency. Philip immediately suspects they are there to discuss the books he's been checking out at the library. He sounds borderline crazy-guy conspiracy theorist, but Philip quickly shows himself to be no crazier than anyone else who thinks aliens are visiting Earth.

With a little help from an unlikely source, Philip escapes the two agents, who aren't who they claim to be, and finds himself drawn involuntarily on a path not of his choosing.

Becka Johnson, baby Rena grown up and with a new name, returns to Chalcedony thirty-seven years after her adoptive mother found her.

Becka has decided it's time to find the answers to her lifelong questions that center around "who am I?
