Publisher's 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?

    Caroline Fletcher knows slavery is wrong. Her father's slaves have been more family to her than her own father and mother. But no one else in the South seems to be bothered with it. And when the Civil War starts Caroline has to decide if she'll do what God is telling her to even if it means losing her friends and the one she loves.

    "Candle in the Darkness" is set during the Civil War in Richmond, Virginia. The book starts with Caroline as a child and shows us how she came to believe what she believed. It then takes us through her adolescence and through the Civil War. Overall, it's a pretty interesting story about standing up for what you know is right even when everyone's against you. Eli, Caroline's slave who hopes to be a preacher when the slaves are set free, delivers so many messages of God's love and faithfulness!

    "Candle in the Darkness" is a long beautiful tale, so if you have a number of hours on your hand be sure to check it out. It is the first of three books, the others being "Fire by Night" and "A Light to My Path."

    I can see why this was the Christy Award winner in 2003 for best North American Historical. Not only a richly detailed novel of Richmond's role in the Civil War, it is also an inspiring tale of conviction, transformation, and faith.

    Caroline sees incredible growth throughout the novel, and she is one of the most convincing Southern abolitionists I've ever read about. Essentially, this is the story of how the child of a slave-holding Southern couple ended up fighting for the freedom of slaves, detailing the events and people who influenced her to turn her from her upbringing. It wasn't an overnight experience, and it didn't mean that she hated her Confederate family, friends, neighbors, and city. She's strong, real, and believable.

    While some may find this story to be heavy on spiritual matters, it is important to Caroline's journey to becoming the strong woman she is. And there are so many gems of wisdom in there, it could fill a book by themselves. I loved the parallels between the Civil War and the Israelites' exodus from Egypt.

    One thing that stood out to me is difference between Caroline's actions and those of the most of the other characters in the book. She isn't fighting for a cause, not like the fire-filled abolitionists of the North or the Confederates who are fighting for states' rights. She is fighting for the people she loves.

    Not only is this book a solid choice for Civil War history, it is a solid, moving story. I highly recommend it - 5 out of 5 stars!
