Product Description

This riveting, true story captures the joy of Neta Loewen's childhood in Ukraine, cut short by the Russian Revolution. As the ravages of Stalin's Communism descend on their small village, this Mennonite family experiences persecution, starvation, and death.

Neta falls in love with Isaac and marries him. With the onset of World War II, Isaac is conscripted into the German army. A few months later, he is declared missing.Neta-now a mother alone with four small children-flees with nothing more than the clothes on their backs and the few possessions they can carry.

Read about Neta's escape to refugee camps in Europe and her desperate attempts to care for her children and herself. Rejoice with her when she finds members of her family again and she is able to immigrate to Canada and begin a new life of freedom and safety.

A gripping account of great pain and loss-but through it all shines the love of God Who led her as a Kindly Light and made a way where there seemed to be no way.

Praise for Lead, Kindly Light "A great story to share between generations." -Wayne Bremner, Executive Director Mennonite Central Committee BC "Thousands of Mennonite refugees shared Neta's frightening experiences, but rarely have any of them written such a compelling book. Lead, Kindly Light is so real in all its details that in reading it, I was back in Germany again." - Peter J. Dyck, former MCC Director of West Europe, Russia, and North Africa, and author of Up From The Rubble.
