The Candle and the Cat

Mary Finley Leonard (1862 - 1948)

"To the memory of TROLLEY, This little story is dedicated."

When young Caro goes to stay with her Aunt and Grandfather, the seminary president, she learns to not be afraid of the dark and to "be a candle" by "sharing her light" with the help of Trolley the cat. In doing so, she is able to help others, including a reclusive invalid, renew their old friendships. - Summary by JHedrick
