'And then your father lost his engagement at the theatre,

—I need not tell you why, Rosalie darling,—and we left the town. And then I began to know what poverty meant. We travelled from place to place, sometimes getting occasional jobs at small town theatres, sometimes stopping at a town for a few months, and then being dismissed, and travelling on for weeks without hearing of any employment.

'And then it was that your little brother was born. Such a pretty baby he was, and I named him Arthur after my father. I was very, very poor when he was born, and I could hardly get clothes for him to wear, but oh, Rosalie darling, I loved him very much! I wrote to my mother to tell her about it, and that baby was to be christened after my father; but she sent back my letter unread, and I never wrote to her again. And one day, when I took up a newspaper, I saw . . . Read More

The story is about a young girl named Rosalie who is brought up as a part of a traveling theatre show. Her mother has taken ill and her Father, who runs the traveling theatre show is a very hard man, who is only interested in making as much profit as he can. A stranger gifts Rosalie a picture of...more

John Rhys-Davis introduces the story of each of these beautiful Lamplighter stories and the voice-actors all have a professional and sincere quality that enhances the story nicely. The music and background effects were just right to keep my interest of the story without going overboard. Lamplight...more

A Peep Behind the Scenes has been a favorite of mine for many years. I'll pick it up every now and again and lose myself in the story of a hurting little girl who just wants her family to be whole and to stop running. This story is so beautifully written and is the perfect example of God's forgiv...more

This is an audio drama of a story written in the 1800's. Young Rosalie is traveling from town to town with her parents. They are singer/actors. Rosalie's mother is very ill and her father is too fond of alcohol to see or acknowledge her illness.

While they are stopped for a performance a man gives...more

I haven't done a review in a while, and this was the perfect book to start back doing reviews.

A Peep Behind the Scenes is a historical fiction book I've owned for some time now. It is part of the Lamplighter Collector Series, which is a subscription company that focuses on old Christian literatur...more

A Peep Behind the Scenes is such a gem! It is sad but sweet and full of beautiful, Christian messages. I certainly wasn't sorry that I read it, and, if you are looking for a pure, Christian story for your children or for yourself, I would highly suggest this one. This story seems very sad at time...more

I read this for school when I was younger and loved it! It is so sweet.

I have been so curious about this book for over a year. Very glad I finally was able to read it. Lot's of examples of how to start a conversation and share the news of the Good Shepherd to others. How to use your faith in difficult situations and asking for Jesus's salvation. Looking forward to r...more

This book was fairly good, very close to the adio dramatisation. Why only three stars? Because it was manonatanis. Rosie moves somewhere, she leads someone to Christ by reading them the parable of the lost sheep, repeat about seven times. Also one of my favorite characters ended up dying in the e...more
