Never Too Late
A story about the clash of two worlds – the intense struggle that occurs both within and without. Never Too Late is the story of the contrasting lives of two wealthy widows. Mrs. Canning, not accustomed to being denied anything, indulges in the luxuries of this world. Mrs. Ross, with modest dignity, works hard just to set food on the table.
Will poor widow Ross give her consent to turn her child over to the care of another? Can a hardened woman, who has everything this world has to offer, find truth through the innocence of a child?
In this poignant story, author Ella Ross tenderly conveys a life-giving message for those who are seeking – that it is never too late to find God.
Originally written in 1867, and like all Lamplighter volumes, Never Too Late has that trademark facsimile clothbound cover!
“I love Lamplighter books! This story reminds us that simply living a godly life, really does have power to influence others for the kingdom. Better yet, God uses our godly lives to touch the unsaved. A poor lady was raising a godly little girl, and the little girl touched the life of an old rich women. (Can’t tell the rest of the story) The title gives us hope for our loved one.” — Robbin VanDeusen, Raeford, North Carolina

About the Lamplighter Rare Collector’s Series
Lamplighter stories are far more than merely good, wholesome reading for your 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.
