Fifteen-year-old Jessie Ann Gaebele applies for a job with a photographer in 1907.

    Jessie Gaebele's life couldn't be better. Armed with the knowledge to run her own photographic studio, she decides to help owners run their studios while they are sick with mercury poisoning. She steps closer and closer to owning her own studio, and she scrimps and saves until her goal is within her reach.

    Despite Jessie's good intentions, it seems as if she is an impasse in her life. She cannot move forward with her studio plans, nor is she making progress with overcoming her infatuation with her tutor and mentor, F.J. Bauer. Is she truly a woman in a man's world, or is she capable of becoming her own person?

    While this novel is better enjoyed after the first book, A Flickering Light, it stands well on it's own as well. While the end is predictable, the resolution and peace that is found by the characters is quite astounding considering the subject matter. F.J. Bauer's great lengths to pursuit of a woman he could never have is a little far-fetched to my mind, but some stories are too crazy to be made up. And this one was as close to the heart of the truth as Kirkpatrick could get. I commend her for tackling on such a feat; a fictional depiction and account of the true to life events surrounding her grandmother's life. A work well done.

    I love reading Jane Kirkpatrick books. Whether non-fiction or even when fictional, they are about things that often happen in real life to real people. It would be wonderful if our daily living could always be easy and with simple choices, BUT its not. Life is often filled with hard or difficult decisions having to be made. Satan is constantly placing temptations in our weak areas. Jane's books reveal life as it is. Thank you CBC for giving us many different reading avenues.

    Some true stories should not be repeated...and this was one of them. I understand being married to someone who is not right in their head, but a man who is 26 years older falling in love with a young girl, then stalking her the whole book...manipulating himself into her life at every turn until finally his wife cannot handle it anymore is not my idea of a good story to be repeated. i don't care if they were happy later...some things should not happen and should not be repeated in a story for all time to remember. The photography history was very interesting, i enjoyed that part of it.

    I had a knee-jerk reaction with book one in this series, but this one was a total turn off.
