This is the story of a girl whose father became a light house keeper. She has the task of helping her father, as well as attending school and doing chores for her grandmother! It gives a good picture of life in Civil War Delaware. She records her thought in her diary.

I love these Books! All of the Dear America Series I have read so far have been great! I can't wait to read another in the series as soon as I finish one. This one was a little slow at first and I was upset because they talked bad about the South, especially South Carolina where I was born, raised and still abide(I am a true Southern Lady)but it was not personal it was historical. In this book, you learn a lot about the life of a lighthouse keeper and their duties and I found this very interesting.
It was a wonderful read!

Part of the popular Dear America series, A Light in the Storm chronicles a year in the life of a 16-year-old girl at the start of the Civil War.

Amelia Martin begins her diary in the final days of 1860. Amelia is the daughter of a lighthouse keeper on Fenwick Island, Delaware. The reader experiences the events that led to the Civil War through Amelia's eyes. She is very distressed when South Carolina secedes from the Union and wonders what that will mean for President-Elect Abraham Lincoln.

The conflict also has a much more personal effect on Amelia and her family. Amelia's parents are bitterly divided over the issue of slavery, which creates a very tense home life. Her mother is also prone to depression and Amelia struggles to understand her mother's sudden mood changes.

As war becomes an inevitability, Amelia's friend Daniel enlists in the Union army. Amelia worries for his safety and anxiously anticipates his letters from the front. The other lighthouse keeper at Fenwick Island also enlists, and a new keeper with a large family takes his place. Their joyful home life is a stark contrast to the tension present in Amelia's family.

Eventually, writing in her diary during the nightly watch is one of the few things that brings Amelia peace. She worries about the uncertain future of the country as well as the toll the conflict will take on her parents' marriage:

"I feel as if I am the Light in my family. I must keep my hope burning, so that Father and Mother, even in the darkness that seems to engulf them, might find their way back."

Amelia's diary, though fictional, is very moving. A Light in the Storm provides a unique look at life in Delaware during the early days of the Civil War. Delaware permitted slavery but never joined the Confederacy. Amelia's voice is compelling and young people will be able to relate to her hopes and fears. The book includes an interesting and informative appendix of historical information related to the story.

"A Light in the Storm" is the definitive civil war diary in the series. Young Amelia Martin lives and works in a lighthouse off the coast of the "neutral" state of Delaware, which is neither a slave state nor a free state, yet contains citizens who feel passionately about the issue on both sides. As the country is torn by war and succession over the issue of slavery, Amelia's own family is torn apart for the same reasons. Amelia's father is an abolitionist; her mother is staunchly pro-slavery and detests African Americans. Amelia herself was raised to believe in "Negro inferiority", yet after saving the lives of a shipwrecked family of escaped slaves, she realizes that these people are just as strong, just as intelligent, and just as human as she herself.

The tempest within the lighthouse, as Amelia's family tears itself apart, serves as a microcosm through which the entire war can be viewed. To Amelia's despair and heartbreak, neither side is willing to negotiate or even communicate with each other, each more interested in causing hurt than in coming together for the sake of their union and their offspring. As Amelia tends the lighthouse faithfully (saving lives and preventing shipwrecks), she finds comfort and solace in the daily routines of the lighthouse and the certainty she finds within its walls.

For parents, there is no violence or sexuality in this novel. There is some mild distress when a friend of Amelia's dies in an ice-skating accident, but the matter is handled delicately. Note, though, that the quiet war of wills between Amelia's parents is acute, and their eventual divorce is very traumatic for Amelia and may possibly be triggering for young children who have experienced divorce first-hand. However, Amelia handles the experience with grace, and it is clear that the issues between her parents are not in any way her fault, so this could be a good discussion point for young children who irrationally fear that they may have "caused" a divorce.
