When tragedy strikes, Janet Kerr, wife of the younger son, finds the ties binding her to Marjory and Elisabeth slowly unraveling.
A timeless tale of loss and redemption, flickering against the vivid backdrop of eighteenth-century Edinburgh, "Here Burns My Candle "reveals the many flaws of human nature and the bright hope of divine providence.
