An Unexpected Offer
From Duty to Love
Republished from an 1899 edition.
The twins share the same curly brown hair and thickly lashed eyes, and spend their childhood hand in hand. Their caretaker Abigail strictly enforces a firm set of values and standards of right and wrong, to which they cheerfully comply.
But a move to the city marks the test of their faith. Neither could have imagined that the day would soon come when they would be separated—physically, emotionally, and even spiritually.
While Bluebell is enticed by the culture of city life, Heather leaves London’s lavish lifestyle to remain true to duty’s call. But she soon realizes life’s greatest call is to accept the never-ending love of Jesus Christ—a love that reaches beyond the prideful adherence to duty’s call.

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.
