Publisher Description

"A gripping tale told by a gifted writer."--Beverly Lewis

Caroline Fletcher is caught in a nation split apart and torn between the ones she loves and a truth she can't deny

The daughter of a wealthy slave-holding family from Richmond, Virginia, Caroline Fletcher is raised to believe slavery is God-ordained and acceptable. But on awakening to its cruelty and injustice, her eyes are opened to the men and women who have cared tirelessly for her. At the same time, her father and her fiance, Charles St. John, are fighting for the Confederacy and their beloved way of life and traditions.

Where does Caroline's loyalty lie? Emboldened by her passion to make a difference and her growing faith, will she risk everything she holds dear?

Candle in the Darkness

This book, along with A Light To My Path, and Fire By Night are must reads if you are interested in the Civil War. These books are among Lynn's best and should be read one after the other. You won't be able to put them down!

Candle in the Darkness

This is one of the best books I have ever read because it gave a historical account of what my people went through to gain their freedom with the help of The Lord and the compassion of my white brothers and sisters. I give this book 5 stars.

Must read (Along with the other 2)

What was it like to live through the Civil war? Read this book (and the others in this series) to gain compassion, understanding, and thankfulness for the freedoms we all have and for those that have fought for it. Freedom is never free and always comes at a high cost. If you allow it; no matter what your nationality/race/color it should make you question do you truly see color or truly see people?
