Première phrase
There are gains for all our losses - There are balms for all our pains; But when youth, the dream, departs, It takes something from hearts, And never comes again. Lire la première page

HASH(0x91a1b018) étoiles sur 5 A compelling look at the Civil War through a girl's eyes. 27 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I found this book to be one of the better of the Dear America series. All of them are well written, but very few manage to capture that, "this is a real person" feel. Some of the books read more like a "this is what is happening in the world" rather than a real diary. However, this book has an engaging character, and a real plot of her parent's seperation. Another interesting thing to note is the way that this book has many layers that were written that the main heroine doesn't neccessarily understand, such as the relationship of her uncle and the freed slave, or her grandmother and her mothers. I also enjoyed watching the relationship between her and a friend's brother grow from a friendship to something more. Overall, I would highly reccomend this book.

A Light in the Storm is one of Hesse's great books. The book is about a girl named Amelia Martin. Amelia's story takes place during the harsh Civil War. Her family lives on Fenwick Island in Delaware. Her father runs a lighthouse she helps him though. Her bestfriend William gets very sick will he live or die? Read this book to find out. I give this book 5 stars.

HASH(0x9198c354) étoiles sur 5 Great Main Character, Time Period Info, and Journal Format 7 janvier 2002
Par Tammy - Publié sur

The main character, Amelia, is nicknamed 'Wickie" because of her work in the lighthouse and dealing with the wicks. Her gender role is very uncommon for the time period as is her political interests. Wickie's family lives at a lighthouse where her father is the assistant light keeper. Wickie takes equal shifts with her father and the head light keeper and truly enjoys her position. Her mother is very unhappy on the island away from her mother and has several physical ailments which leave her cross and quarrelsome throughout the book. Amelia is also a helper at the local school on the mainland. She is certainly a character of many strengths. She works hard, helps her family, and cares about those around her. She is a great role model for today's readers. The journal style format of the Dear America series makes it easy to read and is great for introducing this type of writing to any young student. The pictures and documents at the end of the book are helpful and lend to the information provided on that time period in America's history. Amelia's story revolves around working at the lighthouse and on the mainland, becoming active in the political views of the Civil war, and falling in love with a fellow neighbor. It is a very enjoyable book to read and I recommend it for any student studying the Civil War or that time period in America's history.

HASH(0x917fc858) étoiles sur 5 Skip the epilogue! 29 septembre 2006
Par K. Moss - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is the first Dear America book I have read and for the most part I really enjoyed how they give you a glimpse into what it was like to live back then. It brings up interesting issues sometimes only glossed over in the history books and makes it more personal. However, two things bothered me: First was the fact that Amelia's parents got divorced. Not just separated, but actually legally divorced. I know the Civil War tore people apart, but actual divorce was very rare during that time. Also, I didn't feel like it was really the Civil War that tore Amelia's parents apart. They don't really discuss it other than that Amelia's mother does not agree with Lincoln and gets angry whenever the subject is brought up. For a fair portrayal of the time, the book should have done a better job representing her mother as someone to sympathize with as well, instead of that she's always in the wrong.
Secondly, the epilogue at the end was completely upsetting. It talks about her Uncle and his common law wife like it was a common occurance! I'm sorry, but back then, a common law wife, especially to an African American was just not so easily accepted. Also, it states that Amelia and Daniel marry and then separate! Come on! Amelia is the source of light and hope through out this book and then she separates from her husband too, for no better reason than he wanted to move west??! Besides once again setting up this kind of relationship as normal for that time period, it completely undercuts and the sincerety and strength of Amelia and Daniel's relationship as set up in the diary.
This book has some great points and wonderful characters but it is ruined by the end.

HASH(0x91800ca8) étoiles sur 5 Great Book 6 octobre 2006
Par Taylor Peckin - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I love this book series (I am a 15-year-old girl). I liked this book because it shows the dramatic time of the Civil War written by 16-year-old Amelia Martin who lives in a small island in Delaware and misses her family dearly. Amelia works at a Lighthouse every day.
