You'll soon discover why The Lamplighter outsold The Scarlet Letter ten to one in 1850! In fact, Nathaniel Hawthorne was livid about the moral truths presented in The Lamplighter, which overshadowed his attempt to influence society with a secular worldview. In this poignant novel, Gerty stands alone in the fearfully cold night until the old lamplighter sees what others cannot. Simple in mind but not in heart, he takes on the role of father and protector. His blind friend tempers the rough edges of Gerty?s heart, as she becomes the instrument that God uses to open the eyes of the blind and bring light to those whose hearts have been scarred by life's dark moments.
