Read full description of the books:

Why I decided to read this book: I decided to read this book after having seen the film A Man Called Peter, about Catherine Marshall's husband. I have been a fan of Catherine Marshall's for a long time and had wanted to see the film for a long time but this was the first time I had a chance to see it. After watching the film, I looked at the comments on the Internet Movie Data Base and saw a comment about the book Light in My Darkest Night to the effect that Catherine Marshall discussed her life after her husband's death and her decision to remarry.

About the book: This book was published after Catherine Marshall's death by her second husband, Leonard LeSourd. It is based on her writings and journals with background information provided by her husband.

Plot summary: The main focus of the book is the summer of 1971 and the spiritual crisis Catherine Marshall went through surrounding the death of her infant granddaughter. When her third granddaughter was born with serious medical issues, and in light of the fact that her first grandchild died shortly after birth, Catherine believed that the Lord was calling her to pray for her grandchild and that if she and her friends did so, the Lord would prevent the child from dying. She called on several of her Christian friends to take part in a four-day retreat to pray for the child. Her friends felt the retreat was a time of great spiritual growth and blessing and God even used one of them to heal an unrelated child, but her grandchild was apparently unaffected. After six weeks, the child died. Catherine had difficulty understanding why she had felt so strongly that the child would be healed if they prayed for her but it didn't happen. The apparent failure also brought some doubts to the surface about her marriage situation. In addition a book project she had been working on for some time fell through. Catherine was plunged into a depression for a time but finally came to accept what happened.

The book describes what happened during the retreat in great detail. One thing that I enjoyed about the book was that it discussed the issue of Catherine marrying a divorced man (Leonard LeSourd) following her husband's death. I had always wondered about that. Though Catherine felt at the time that the marriage was God's will, she had some reservations about it and apparently never felt completely at peace. Though she had a happy marriage, there was constant friction with her three stepchildren, in addition to some problems with Peter Jr. By contrast Leonard never seemed to have any doubts. It was interesting to see Catherine described from her husband's perspective and I think it helps to flesh out her personality. She appears to be a very decisive person who believes greatly in what she is doing, but possibly a little overly critical when people don't meet her standards. I enjoyed hearing a little bit more about what happened to her after A Man Called Peter, and this was a story that I had not heard before.

One reason that the description of the friends who met with her was interesting was that they include some prominent Christian figures. The friends who met with her on the retreat, in addition to herself and her husband, were her son Peter and his wife Edith (the child's parents); John and Elizabeth Sherrill; Jamie Buckingham, roving editor for Guideposts; Virginia Lively; Charles Hotchkiss, an episcopal priest, and his wife Linda; Bob Slosser, an editor of the New York Times, and his wife Gloria; Scott and Nedra Ross; Pam Gordon, wife of Arthur Gordon, a Guideposts associate; and her stepdaughter Linda LeSourd, totalling 16 people.

Read information about the author

Ebook Light in My Darkest Night read Online! Marshall was born in Johnson City, Tennessee.[1][2] She was the daughter of the Reverend John Ambrose Wood and Leonora Whitaker Wood.[1] From the age of nine until her graduation from high school, Marshall was raised in Keyser, West Virginia,[1] where her father served as pastor of a Presbyterian church from 1924 to 1942.[1]

While a junior at Agnes Scott College, she met Peter Marshall, marrying him in 1936.[1] The couple moved to Washington, DC, where her husband served as pastor of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church and Chaplain of the United States Senate.

In 1940, Marshall contracted tuberculosis,[1] for which at that time there was no antibiotic treatment. She spent nearly three years recovering from the illness.[1] Her husband died in 1949 of a heart attack, leaving her to care for their 9-year-old son, Peter John Marshall. He later also became a minister and author.

Marshall wrote a biography of her husband, A Man Called Peter, published in 1951. It became a nationwide success and was adapted as a film of the same name, released in 1955. Her success encouraged her to keep writing.

Marshall wrote or edited more than 30 books, which have sold over 16 million copies.[citation needed] They include edited collections of Peter Marshall's sermons and prayers, and her own inspirational writings. Her most successful books were A Man Called Peter (1951); and her novel, Christy (1967), which was inspired by the story of her mother's time in the mountains teaching the impoverished children of Appalachia. Christy was adapted as a CBS television series, starring Kellie Martin, beginning in 1994.

In 1959, Marshall married Leonard LeSourd,[1] who was the editor of Guideposts Magazine for 28 years. Together they founded a book imprint, Chosen Books.[citation needed] They had three children, Linda, Chester and Jeffery.[3]

Marshall died on March 18, 1983 at the age of 68. She was buried alongside her first husband.
