Light in the Darkness
A Story of the Franco-German War
Light in the Darkness is the inspiring story of a young French woman during the Franco-German war. During wartime’s difficult trials, Leonie finds hope and friendship in a most unexpected person – a German colonel! And when life seems dark and the world hostile, Leonie finds solace in God’s very tangible love, through the care of her new Christian friend. Themes of Catholicism lay the groundwork for the light of truth to shine.
Light in the Darkness was originally written in 1883.
“This is a truly enjoyable story. Couldn’t put it down till it was finished and was disappointed when it was finished.” — Cindy Tucker of Grandfalls, Texas
“It was an excellent read and I am still deliberating which granddaughter I shall bless with it. With our tumultuous times, it has very valuable lessons on overcoming tragedy in life.” — Marilyn Perkins of Deer Park, Wisconsin

About the Lamplighter Rare Collector’s Series
Lamplighter stories are much more than good and wholesome reading for the family. The inspiring role models found in Lamplighter books show a child that outward compliance alone will not carry a child through the stresses and disappointments soon to be faced in adolescence and adulthood, nor are they a substitute for faith in Christ. As we learn of perseverance, courage, loyalty, humility, these are qualities to emulate and pursue, but as children read in stories of others like them trying their best and falling short, they will powerfully learn their need for the gospel. Though life is often not easy, we can be confident that each disappointment and trial is designed by a loving God for our good.
Lamplighter books are carefully designed to draw children back to the Bible, to ensure that each story reflects the character of God. Often, key Scriptures are referenced so that they may be stored in a child’s heart. Lamplighter volumes are recognizable right away by their beautiful, high-quality bindings. But the other unique feature of a Lamplighter book, in contrast to other publications of the same title, is that the Lamplighter editions have been enhanced with helpful footnotes and woven with threads of Biblical truths that will be etched into an awakened moral conscience. These characteristics are what make our Lamplighter Collection so unique and highly valued.
