‘The Thirteenth Candle?’ Well, it is meant to be a logicaltitle derived from what I am trying to do. I am trying to‘light a candle’ which is far better than ‘cursing the dark-ness’. This is my thirteenth book which, I hope, will be myThirteenth Candle.You may think it is a very little candle, perhaps one of those birthday-cake candles.
