Candle in the Darkness by Lynn Austin

Book 1 in the Refiner's Fire series. The daughter of a wealthy slave-holding family from Richmond, Virginia, Caroline Fletcher is raised in a culture that believes slavery is God-ordained and biblically acceptable. But upon awakening to the cruelty and injustice it encompasses, Caroline's eyes are opened for the first time to the men and women who have cared tirelessly for her. Her journey of maturity and faith will draw her into the abolitionist movement, where she is confronted with the risks and sacrifices her beliefs entail.

My Review -

This book was pretty good and I absolutely LOVED the ending...I took me a while to get into the book cause it was set back in the 1860's and that's not usually the type of writing I read but I love all of Austin's other books so I knew after I got into this book I'd like it as well. I will be reading the other books in this series and I can't wait to read them! :) I only gave it a 3 star, instead of 4 or 5, because I'm quiet stingy with my 4 and 5 stars! :)
