Candle In the Darkness

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.
