Its original title: The Child of the Toy-Stall
Little girl Faith adored John Robinson, her adopted father. He had taken care of her since her mother had died. But when providence allowed hardship to enter Faith’s life, she responded by running away from his comfort, love, and protection – but also away from dreadful Mrs. Gubbins, who had no patience for children. As she ran, she poured out her troubles to her Great Friend, Jesus. But He did not answer her prayers quickly, from which this little girl began to learn the meaning of her own name.
This compelling story by the author of Christie’s Old Organ will show you and your children how true faith in the Lord Jesus carries the believer through the most grievous of hardships.

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.
