Short Book Description:

Presque Isle, Michigan

What Is the Secret That Could Shipwreck Both of Their Lives?

All Emma Chambers ever wanted was a home, but when her steamboat sinks just outside Presque Isle, she’s left destitute and with no place to stay.

An unlikely solution arises when the lighthouse keeper arrives in town. He’s just lost his wife and is having a difficult time caring for his child. So a traveling preacher gets the idea that the keeper and Emma might be the answer to each other’s dilemma. After a hasty marriage, she finds herself heading to the lighthouse with this handsome but quiet stranger. Nothing in her aimless life, though, has prepared her for parenting a rambunctious toddler, as well as managing a household.

Emma soon suspects Patrick may be hiding something from her, and then she hears a disturbing rumor about the circumstances surrounding his late wife’s death. It seems as if her wish for a home and family of her own could end up leading her once more into turbulent waters.

My Thoughts:

Having read only one book by Jody Hedlund before, which is a favorite of mine, I was really looking forward to reading this one. I wasn’t disappointed in the least.

This was the perfect beginning to the series. I loved it and couldn’t put it down once I started, which resulted in some neglected chores among some other things, and finished it in about 4 hours.

Emma is a character that I think most girls can relate to somehow but, especially in the fact that just as she doubted that she would ever find her soul’s mate and that is something that most if not every girl struggles with at one point in their life.

I can’t wait for the next book in this series and any other books that come out by this author. They are exceptionally well written and both of the books I’ve read have become favorites.
