The Lightkeeper’s Daughter by Colleen Coble was such a wonderful story! I read it in a day!
Addie Sullivan is a young woman who grew up in a lighthouse after her parents found her on shore at only two years old. Years later a stranger shows up and tells her she is someone else. Her father had passed recently and her mother never really truly showed her love to her in a way that filled her heart. Her heart was with God and her sidekick and best friend Gideon, her dog. She decides to go with the stranger who she finds out is her uncle Walter. She moves into the lavish home of the Eatons in along the California redwood forests. This story takes place in the 1800’s through early 1900’s so the story is full of lavish discriptions of the way the men and women dressed and the way the homes were built and how people just lived in this day and age. Addie discovers she is actually Julia Eaton and the son of Henry who is the head of the family. He welcomes her in but there is a secret he is keeping from her. A big one! Addie/Julie finds what she believes is love with John, a young widower and Edwards father. Edward is five years old and is coddled and kept at home away from other children because he suffers from fits of seizures from epilepsy. The story is full of love, beauty, mystery and drama. It was a wonderful read and I am looking forward to finding more book by Colleen Coble to add to my collection.
