A struggling merchant. A man yoked to a plough. Two blighted lives that meet to stir an astounding light. In this versioning of a classic Ethiopian folk tale we are reminded that, no matter what the suffering or misfortune, everything changes, everything passes. With songs, humour and a wayward goat, A Shining Candle in a Sea of Darkness is a tale for all ages.Author N.E.A. Carter.
