    Winner of the 2001 Christy Award, Lynn Austin captures the turmoil of the Civil War in this stirring novel. From vast plantations to the cramped closets of the Underground Railroad, it follows one young woman's inspiring journey of risk and sacrifice.

    Terry says: "A different look at the Civil War"
    "Candle In the Darkness"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. I really felt I got to know the main character, Caroline, and was very concerned with the outcome of the book and her fate. I particularly enjoyed the beginning of the book that discussed her childhood.
    A lot of issues were brought up that are not always addressed in a Civil War novel. This book also caused much introspection, and gave me a lot to think about.
    I would recomend this book. The narrator is effective and mostly very pleasant to listen to.

    Henry Townsend, a black farmer, bootmaker, and former slave, has a fondness for Paradise Lost and an unusual mentor, William Robbins, perhaps the most powerful white man in antebellum Virginia's Manchester County. Under Robbins's tutelage, Henry becomes proprietor of his own plantation, as well as of his own slaves. When he dies, his widow Caldonia succumbs to profound grief, and things begin to fall apart.

    Rachel says: "wonderful and highly recommended"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I was very disappointed with this book, the slow pace, the innumerable characters, the flashbacks and flash fowards were confusing. I also felt there was a lack of character development that would explain some of their actions. Although there were some interesting characters, I would not recomend this book. It was very hard to get through.
