Product Description

Nancy Williamson, Cibolo, Texas:
This book was so interesting and enjoyable that I read it through twice. I could relate to and enjoyed every character. The transition from the end of “The Wickie” to the beginning of “Spirit of The Lighthouse” flowed as seamlessly as turning the page to the next chapter.

Judy Kagrise, Cincinnati, Ohio:
The dialogue in this book made the characters very believable, and they acted as you’d expect for the period. I liked every character but especially the small boy. It was very interesting to learn how busy lighthouse keepers were in the 1800’s to operate and maintain a lighthouse. A powerful ending.

Gaylyn Bradley, Lihue, Hawaii:
The story held my interest from beginning to end of the book. Characters and their lives sounded so natural, and their challenges believable. This is an interesting and enjoyable read.
