Basket of Flowers, The


(20 customer reviews)

This first book of the Lamplighter Collection continues to be a best-seller. James, the king's gardener, teaches his 15-year-old daughter Mary all the principles of godliness through his flowers. She is falsely accused of stealing, and the penalty is death. Mary remembers what her father has taught her: that it is better to die for the truth than to live for a lie, and that the worst pillow to sleep on is the pillow of a guilty conscience!

    Highly Recommend This is my favorite Lamplighter so far! What a rich story of redemption. My mother in law read it and wanted her own copy.

    Sweet, But Son Wanted More Action Loved the life applications, but my son complained that it didn’t have enough action in it for him. My daughter and I *loved* it!

    Highly Recommended This is a wonderful book full of Biblical insights and what it means to be a true follower of God. I read it and am now reading it to my thirteen year old daughter who can’t wait each day to hear more. Thank you Lamplighter for making such great life lesson books available.

    😃 Absolutely Amazing This book is absolutely amazing. You can read it over and over and still get something new out of it. It was the first Lamplighter book I read, and it is amazing. A must read.

    The Book Behind the Audio Drama Our family was blessed to find Lamplighter a few years ago through a magnificent sale, wherein we bought many audio dramas for a remarkable price. As a father of 6, James the gardener is a great example to me of living and breathing the Word of God for my children to see, hear, and learn from. This story is a blessing to us as we see the love of a father for his daughter, faithfulness to truth and God’s Word in the face of persecution, and even faith-affirming and Biblical dealing with tough issues such as death and loving those who are difficult. This story has been a blessing to our family, and we recently purchased copies to give to others.

    While we love the audio dramas, our kids (especially our 12 and 8 year old girls) love to read. As a family who loves the Lord and also a love for reading books which will build us up in Christ, we are cautious about what we allow in our home. A while back we decided that even if we can only have a few books, we would rather have a few Biblical, Gospel- focused, and God- honoring books than fill our shelves with items of interest that lacked edifying content.

    Determined to honor our Lord and Savior, we purged out many “fluff” books, books whose sole purpose was entertainment or suspense, and decided to invest in books that we felt safe handing to our children, which would not lead them astray into doctrinal error, and whose quality of content and even printing and binding, exemplify Christian publishing. We have a very modest income and cannot afford to buy titles often, but whenever we are able, we buy Lamplighter books and audio dramas to enjoy as a family.

    Striving For Holiness Is Worth It As a father who wants his children to grow in their love for Christ, this book both encouraged and shamed me. It reminded me how much I need to grow in being able to teach my kids to see God at work in all things, and also beautifully revealed that it is always right to do right. Great book for dads to read aloud to their children. Highly recommend it!

    Delightful I gleaned lessons for my own life from the very beginning of this book. Definitely a must read for tween girls.

    Delightful, Humbling Book–Very Highly Recommended! This volume, though little and humble, is filled with the most heavenly words–words that point one’s gaze upward, fix one’s thoughts on Christ, and carry one’s heart to heaven, where it delights itself in the wondrous love of the all-worthy Lion and the Lamb.

    Wonderful Lessons! You will fall in love with Mary and be riveted by her love for her father and her integrity, and loyalty to the Lord and His righteousness in the face of possible death. As a parent this book birthed in me a desire to teach my children to love modesty, simplicity and integrity the way Mary’s father taught her. As a daughter of the Lord it birthed a desire to be more like Mary myself.

    Best of the Best This brought me to tears a half a dozen times. Hallmark ought to make a movie based on this book. The ending has a clever twist and a lovely surprise.

    Wow! So Rich in Values! As I read through this book with my five children I have to keep stopping because we get in such DEEP conversations about truth, conviction, purity, God’s sovereignty… This book has truly brought my family closer together and much closer in our walk with Jesus. We’re constantly referring back to this book as a reminder of application of scriptures that we have been reading.

    No one wants to stop reading. It’s always “ONE MORE CHAPTER MOM!!! PLEASE!!!”

    A Sweet Book I got this book for my 15 birthday from my grandma. It was just what I wanted. I started to read it and finished it in 2 days. I loved it! It is such a sweet story with times of suffering and joy. It shows that in times of suffering you can depend on God to help you through them.

    Beautiful This is a very beautifully written story. So far my favorite of the three Lamplighter books we’ve read. I absolutely adore how they tie scripture into the story! Another bonus is with these books in the footnotes there’s definitions of some of the more difficult words and references to scriptures. This story is about an amazing little girl who goes through a lot but maintains her integrity.
