The Lightkeeper's Daughter by Colleen Coble


Growing up as the lightkeeper’s daughter on a remote island at the turn of the century, Addie Sullivan has lived a hardscrabble life. When a long-lost and wealthy relative finds her and enlists her to work as a governess at a lavish estate, she hopes to discover the truth of her heritage. But at Eaton Hall, nothing is as it seems. Not the idyllic family she hoped for, not the child she was hired to help, not even the aloof man she’s immediately attracted to. Soon she must turn for help to Lieutenant John North, a man who views her with suspicion.

As Addie edges closer to the truth, danger threatens even as her romance with John blossoms and together they unravel a decades-old mystery. As Addie faces down her enemy, she discovers that faith in her one true Father is all she needs.

My take:~

Colleen Coble brings her trademark suspense to another timezone in her debut historical romance, The Lightkeeper's Daughter. With a traditional storyline of a poverty stricken young girl pulled from obscurity into the home of the wealthy and socially conscious Eaton family, Colleen adds plenty of unexpected twists and a vibrant attraction, which will garner her a whole new fan base. Accomplished at weaving spiritual truths naturally into the story, Colleen reminds the reader that God is never far away. While Colleen's contemporary stories will be closest to my heart, she has proved the historical genre is well within her literary grasp!
