Where Love Shines, Where There is Love #5

By Donna Fletcher Crow


“Half a league, half a league/ Half a league onward, All in the valley of Death/ Rode the six hundred.” Lieutenant Richard Greyston seeks heroic glory in the Charge of the Light Brigade. Jennifer Neville goes to Scutari as one of Florence Nightingale’s nurses dreaming of wiping the brows of the wounded. Richard winds up blinded and Jennifer spends her days carrying slops as mice fall from the walls of the hospital.
Back in London Jennifer throws herself into charity work under the leadership of the Earl of Shaftesbury. She is delighted to reconnect with the convalescing Richard until she learns that his family’s wealth is built on the potteries where children are subjected to unimaginable brutality. Richard eventually joins Shaftesbury’s fight for social justice but must find a way out of the darkness to deal with his feelings for Jennifer.

Book Takeaway:

God can use all to build His kingdom, no matter what we must overcome.

Why the author wrote this book:

I had long been fascinated by the horror and the gallantry of the Charge of the Light Brigade, as well a the bravery and sacrifice of Florence Nightingale and her nurses. This story enabled me to tell both those stories, as well as the reforming work of the Earl of Shaftesbury.
