With an intriguing plot, M. L. Stedman begins her story as a childless couple rescues a baby from a boat that lands by their home. If you enjoy novels, this book is a page turner—right to the end. It’s hard to say more without giving it away, but it will tug at your heart, enlarge your understanding of life as a lighthouse keeper and cause you to ponder the hard places of life where people sometimes find themselves. It will also make you consider the ultimate impact of the choices you make on a daily basis. I heartily recommend this one. A little salty language here and there, as befitting for the characters, but other than that, it’s a five-star read.
