Beneath the Rising Tide
On a small island of the North Sea stand two thatched cottages, raised to protect their inhabitants against the looming sea. The home of the Rikmers is of crude appearance in contrast to their friendly neighbor, the Henneke family. Jealousy, blame, and self-pity overtake Arvst Rikmer, making him miserable. He is thankless and lazy, and would rather complain than work.
The Henneke family welcomes a warm friendship, but their intentions are not reciprocated. Even a hurling storm cannot quench the flow of bitterness in Rikmer’s heart—until the impenetrable fog sets in. Panic ensues as the tide swells and Arvst faces certain death. But is this enough to make him swallow his selfish pride and cling to the firm foundation that he sees in his neighbor? Precious time will tell.
In this unique tale, discover how God’s love can penetrate the deepest darkness. Walk with Rikmer through the fog of doubt and cloud of hatred, and discover a peace that passes understanding. You will see more clearly as you journey through this adventurous story.
The Lamplighter Rare Collector’s Series
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.
