“On a very old winter night, Jacqueline (Jackie for short), was born to the proud parents of Ruth Green and Matt Jones,” and on this very cold winter night, the story begins.
In a small rural town in Savannah, Georgia lives the Jones family. At first glance, they appear to be a strong, faithful group, despite their almost constant struggle with poverty. It appeared that this family was netted together with love.
About a year after the birth of Jackie something happened that caused Ruth to be afraid to say anything. But, when she decided to talk all her fears became a reality. The love of her life, her fiancé Matt walked out on her. Falling into despair, she begins to wonder if she would be able to find the strength she needed to move forward.
A Candle Beneath My Bed is not merely a thread of a young girl’s earliest memories but it provides a heartwarming story that rekindles our faith in family and sheds new light on the things that matter most.
