By Elizabeth Crispina Johnson, illustrated by Amandine Waner
The bees do their work. The beekeeper does hers. And little Felicia, with the honesty and faith of a child, takes the fruit of the bee and the beekeeper's efforts and lights her candle and prays. She prays once, she prays twice, she prays three prayers, then watches the breeze from the window carry her prayers from the candle heavenward.

About the illustrator
Amandine Wanert is a French illustrator who currently lives in Paris. She divides her time between children’s books and medical illustration. She enjoyed working on In the Candle’s Glow, capturing the essence of this joyful, lively little girl who can also be contemplative. Amandine especially enjoyed creating the soft, candlelit atmosphere inside the church. The making of this book was an unusually rich experience for her.
