Overview

In 1938, a 17-year-old German girl received a letter from a stranger living in the Belgian Congo, in the primitive heart of Africa. The writer was a young Jewish man who had been forced by the Nazis to leave his German homeland. The young pair were introduced by her uncle, and the lonely refugee and the young Jewish girl soon became pen pals. It wasn't long before the urgent pleading began. "Get out of Europe," the young man begged Rosemarie, "before it's too late." In the aftermath of shattered glass and lives on Kristallnacht, the Nazis' crushing invasion of Poland, and a world declaration of war, Rosemarie was faced with a decision - whether to follow her heart to this stranger, or to wait with her parents for visas to America. As the Nazis cast their deadly shadow over the Marienthals and the entire European continent, a young girl wavered. Comes a Little Light is a love story that you will not soon forget, and a rare story of hope amidst this war's tragic ashes.
