This heartwarming story shares the strength and faith of a family struggling with poverty

A Candle Beneath My Bed: Betrayal, a new book by Sandra Delores Johnson, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

“On a very cold winter night, I, Jacqueline (Jackie for short), was born to the proud parents of Ruth Green and Matt Jones,” and on this very cold winter night, our story begins.

In a small rural town in Ohio lives the Jones family. At first glance, they appear to be a strong, faithful group, despite their almost constant struggle with poverty. Led by a humble but loving mother, a man who struggles to reconcile his flaws in order to become a compassionate father, and one stoic Grandmamma, this family faces adversity together in the hopes that their combined faith will help them overcome any obstacle.

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.
