I am embarrassingly under-informed about the Crimean War . Basically, all I knew about it before reading this book that it was the scene of Florence Nightingale’s nursing innovations and that the Charge of the Light Brigade happened during the conflict. (oh, and I knew the British and the Russians were fighting but I had no clue who else) During the war, Nightingale pioneered many modern nursing practices after seeing the awful living conditions to which wounded and sick soldiers were subjecte [...]

Molly has a gift for healing.But not for reading people. When she loses her job as a maid in an upper-class London home—due to the deception of another servant she thought was a friend—life suddenly has very few prospects.Florence Nightingale’s call for nurses to serve in the Crimean War seems like fate. And Molly knows this is her calling. If only she wasn’t too young. And from the wrong side of London. And lacking a ticket to get on the boat.All minor issues, really, if you’re willin [...]

In the Shadow of the Lamp follows the adventures of 16-year Molly Fraser, as she joins the nurses traveling with Florence Nightingale to the far-off Crimean war. As the novel opens, Molly loses her job as a chambermaid in one of London's aristocratic mansions when she is unjustly accused of stealing. With no letter of reference, there are few respectable options open to her for employment. Although she is too young and inexperienced to gain employment as one of Miss Nightingale's corps of nurses [...]

I was, at first, uncertain whether or not this would be a good story with the "duel romance" element thrown in for good measure. In my experience, such details are only irksome and end up making the Reader hate everyone, and finally attaching themselves to That Guy because said Reader is fed up with everyone else.The romance isn't as annoying as I was anticipating, but it wasn't my favorite. For once, however, I actually had nothing against the two men Molly Fraser finds herself mixed up with - [...]

In 1854, there aren't a lot of respectable opportunities for young girls in London, so when parlormaid Molly hears that a Miss Nightingale is looking for nurses to join her in the Crimea to tend to the soldiers, she will do whatever it takes to join the group.Of course, Molly isn't actually a nurse, but she is naturally gentle, with a talent for helping the sick and there is so much to learn. Miss Nightingale runs a seriously tight ship and somehow Molly keeps ending up under her disapproving ey [...]

Great book until towards the end.I'm still unconvinced at the plausibility of the romance. It felt as if Will was second choice. Her personal doormat. And hurray for her for realising that she loved him at the most unlikely of events. I'd rather she remained single for the rest of the book. Heck, she did not even understand love to begin with and when she decided to visit Lucy (Will's sister) and mind you, it wasn't because she liked Willt; ta-da, there he was by the door with a walking cane in [...]

I was in need of a historical read, and In the Shadow of the Lamp certainly fulfilled those desires and reminded me why I love the genre so much. I'm a big fan of YA historicals based on real-life events and figures and this one focuses on Florence Nightingale, someone I don't know too much about. The book was quick-paced and enjoyable, though I did have a few issues with it which prevented me from really adoring it.This is my second Susanne Dunlap novel - the first being Anastasia's Secret, whi [...]

For many a girl during 19th century England whose family is poor and can barely feed their family, an oppurtunity to enter the service is something they would seize with alacrity. For sixteen-year-old Molly Fraser, its just one step in life. Here we arrive to meet our energetic, lovable, and brilliant heroine- a parlor maid at the Abington-Smythes. Molly, though finding her life dull, is happy enough with her position. She gets decent wages and there's the handsome Will Parker, a footman, who ha [...]

Once again Dunlap entices readers with her dramatic historical settings. This time we travel to the war-torn fields of Turkey with Florence Nightingale, “the lady of the lamp”. Dunlap is one of my favorite historical fiction writers because I think teens who don’t normally read this genre will enjoy her books. Dunlap has a flair for the dramatic so expect an ending that will leave you hanging on the final page.With the setting by far the strongest part of In the Shadow of the Lamp, Dunlap [...]

I did notice a few inconsistencies throughout this ARC such as female's changing from Mrs to Miss and Emma's soldier's name changing from Thomas to Robert in one scene. However, all these mistakes will be corrected in the finished version of the book I'm sure.This book was the perfect mix of war and romance. The romance throughout the story contained Molly, Emma and their gentlemen. The premise of the story is about a group of nurses being sent to Turkey to help the wounded men from the Crimea W [...]

Excellent! I have never read about this subject before. I loved the way Dunlap portrayed Nightingale. I was so in the mood for a good historical story. I could have done without the romance *rolls eyes* but overall fantastic. I loved the other touches such as the healing "with hands", the healer on the battlefield, and the reality of the wards.

This was more of a 3.5 star read but it was leaning more towards 4 than 3. I really liked this book. It was a nice and easy read that was filled with lots of interesting information about Florence Nightingale and the Crimean War - something I'm very interested in. I love that Mary Seacole was also included in there - albeit only for a moment or two. There were sections that were a bit lacking and some of the important parts weren't stretched out as long as some parts I thought could afford to be [...]

It was totally time for a historical fiction and what a good one it was. Susanne Dunlap always writes interesting historical fictions that make me feel like I'm actually part of the story. At one point in this one, I got seriously misty-eyed.Molly was a parlormaid, fired for "stealing" (her jealous roommate stole silver and put it under Molly's bed to get her fired). Looking for another opportunity to make money for her family in poverty, Molly happens to overhear that Florence Nightingale is lo [...]

3.5 starsThis is the second time I've read this book. The first was years ago and I hadn't remembered much. I believe I liked it a bit less this time, not because of the story but because of a few things I hadn't noticed before.I really enjoyed the story. It was sweet and soul-stirring. The action and romance all combined in a tale that will hold you tight. The characters will very realistically portrayed and I enjoyed each of their places in the story.The first reason I did not like the story w [...]

Normally, I LOVE Susanne Dunlap's historical fiction books to the point where I read it all in one sitting. While this one started off good, I felt like it fell short half-way through. It seemed rushed and not really complete. I'm not sure what happened here, but I greatly missed the wonderful writing I read in Anastasia's Secret. Molly was a great main character at the beginning but then she became kind of tedious with the whole 'I don't know what to do' act taking place constantly the second h [...]

Oh, book. I was so on board with your premise and first half. I was so on board with your main character. I was even on board with your love triangle, because I'm one of those awful people who actually likes love triangles, provided they're not written and/or resolved idiotically. Alas, certain developments soon caused me to look around in alarm and realise things were going downhill. It began with an acceptable shuffle down a gentle slope and ended with a head-long tumble off a cliff. So where [...]

It's not like i didn't like the book. I did. But somehow I didn't enjoy it. Maybe it was just me, not the book. I love historical fiction, and the book was good and researched well. Something about it though, just didn't click with me. This is just what I would call a mediocre book. I flee that Susanne Dunlap has great books, just not interesting enough. For me at least. Good enough though to give her a third try.

The end was so weird? Wtf? I didn't really fancy the doctor but all that talk about not settling for Will, who she said she felt nothing but platonic friendship for, then she decides he's the one for her?
