Candle in the Darkness Jul 27, 2008
This is the best Civil War story that I have ever read. Lynn Austin did a fantastic job of writing the true feelings of one young girl. Caroline never agreed with slavery, but it is all she has ever known. This book follows her decision to do something different that will change the world. I found this book very well written and I couldn't set it down. I love books that tell the story of the Civil War. This story outshines anything else I have read about this time period. Lynn Austin is an truly amazing and gifted author who is able to intertwine Gods love through every theme in her books. This is a must read for any fan of History, or Lynn Austin.
one of the BEST Jul 15, 2008
This story was put together perfectly. Excellent. I could read it again. If you like civil war period fiction you'll probably love this.
Candle in the Darkness Dec 7, 2007
this was a great series and I've started passing it around. Great story and characters.
An amazing historical novel! Sep 20, 2006
I read this book in 2 days and couldn't put it down last night until I finished it at 2am. The author gave great details on the war and the characters that you feel like you're part of the story. I also like how the character, Caroline Fletcher, stood up for what she believed and still fought to save her family, even though they didn't agreed what she believed in. I also liked how the author compared the civil war to Bible times. It' never occurred to me how similar the war is to the Egyptian times. Overall, this is a great book that can't be put down without finishing it. I'm looking forward to reading more of Lynn Austin's books.
One of the best Christian Fiction books out there Jun 27, 2006
I picked this book up after reading another Lynn Austin book, Hidden Places. I was engrossed from the first page. I read it in one day. The characters were great, especially the main character. It challenged my views of the Civil War and slavery. It was excellent. The other two in the series are wonderful as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
