A captivating tale of Scottish lighthouse keepers and their families, from the bestselling author of Rhanna
It is December 1922, and the keepers of the Kinvara Light, an impressive lighthouse just off the rugged west coast of Scotland, are home for Christmas after three bleak months away from their families. Robert Sutherland, deputy head keeper, finds little comfort at home: his wife Hannah is embittered by her isolation, by the tragedy of her infant son's cerebral palsy and by her husband's long absences. Rob find solace in the arms of Morna Jean Sommero, whose warmth and love compensate for his sterile marriage.
Christine Marion Fraser has created a vivid Scottish village and peopled it with memorable characters. The spirited and engaging folk of Kinvara, whose fates are shaped by the harsh landscape and the rugged coast on which they live, will move, entrance, and linger in the memory.
