New Book Review: The Lightkeeper's Daughter

Book review of the book: The Lightkeeper’s daughter, by Colleen Coble

(This book was given to me through the book review programm: Booksneeze, you can find it here: http://booksneeze.com/blogger)

Addie Sullivan grew up in a lighthouse in California around the beginning of the 1900s. She never felt loved by her mother, and her father, the lightkeeper died a few years ago. One stormy night, an injured man appears at their doorstep. She tends to his wounds and later hears her mother and the stranger arguing with each other. Addie wants to know what is wrong, and the stranger tells her that she is not really the daughter of the lightkeeper and his wife. The stranger tells her, that she is most likely the daughter of a rich business man in the city, and her name is Julia Eaton. The stranger, by the way, is Addie's uncle, the brother of her late mother.

He uncle persuades her to live at new-found father’s house as a governess for her nephew. This is where the story becomes intricate and complicated. Someone tries to kidnap or hurt her while she is in the woods, and she tries to find out more about her past, her mother and why someone is trying to hurt her. She gets to know and fall in love with the father of her nephew. (Explanation: her half-sister had died in a car accident and left her handsome husband with their 5 year old son, named Edward)

Addie has to renew her trust in the Lord to get through the complications in her life. But in the end she is rewarded for her trust.

The story has many surprising turns, and it was a great book to read. I’m looking forward to reading more in the series of Mercy Falls.
