    According to her lights


    Does the bold text mean in her opinion?

    He played for her and all England heard. Dagmar heard and pretended acquiescence. According to her lights, she
    was magnificent—she invited Esther Levenson to Broadenham, the Grimshaw place in Kent, nor did she wince when
    the actress accepted.

    Stranger Things, Midred Cram, 1923

    Thank you very much
