USA TODAY bestselling author Colleen Coble explores the mystery and the romance of the Revolutionary War.
A young lighthouse keeper must navigate the dangerous waters of revolution and one man’s obsession with her to find safe harbor with the sea captain she loves.
Hannah Thomas believes she’s escaped Galen Wright’s evil intentions by marrying an older lighthouse keeper. Seemingly safe in faraway Massachusetts, her world is upended when John is killed in one of the first battles of the Revolutionary War. Hannah is allowed to continue the difficult task of tending the twin lighthouses in John’s place, though she faces daily disapproval from John’s family. She thinks her loneliness will subside when her younger sister arrives, but she finds Lydia’s obsession with Galen only escalates the dangerous tides swirling around her.
A stormy night brings a shipwrecked sea captain to Hannah’s door, and though he is a Tory, her heart is as traitorous as the dark-eyed captain. Even though she discovers Birch Meredith isn’t the enemy he seemed at first, Hannah isn’t sure their love will ever see the light of freedom.
Wow, what a fantastic read.
I will say at first I wasn’t so sure I would like it but then a few chapters in I realized I was completely absorbed in the story and I had stop make myself stop reading so I could go to sleep.
Colleen has crafted a highly engaging story full of secrets, flawed characters and hope.
Hannah was such a strong young woman. I kept forgetting she was only eighteen. Birch was a great hero but he definitely needed to learn to let things go.
Lydia, Hannah’s sister irritated me-which I think was the point, but I hoped she would wake up and see the truth.
