1860 – Virginia
CAUGHT in a nation splitting apart.
ANGERED by those who would enslave others.
EMBOLDENED by a passion to make a difference.
TORN between the one she loves and a truth she can’t deny.
Here is Caroline Fletcher’s story.
Candle in the Darkness, Book One in the Refiner’s Fire series, tells the story of a timid southern girl who finds her voice as she begins to tell the truth about the atrocities around her. A short stay in the North confirms her abolitionist feelings, but when she returns to the South she finds herself torn between her home, a beloved suitor who doesn’t share her feelings, and the principles she knows are true. Standing for right may mean standing alone. Does she have the courage?
