Summary The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter characters ó 5 “They call me a heroine but I am not deserving of such accolades I am just an ordinary young woman who did her duty”1838 Northumberland England Longstone Lighthouse on the Farne Islands has been Grace Darling’s home for all of her twenty two years When she and her father rescue shipwreck survivors in a furious storm Grace becomes celebrat. 45 stars My sister Thomasin used to say she imagined the stairwell was a long vein running from the heart of the lighthouse In one way or another we have all attached human ualities to these old stone walls so that it has become another member of the family not just a building to house us When a novel is based on the life of a real person it s many times a dilemma for me on how to rate it because I inevitably try to find out about the person when I m reading the book and then I m disappointed if the fictional character s story is imagined than true although I shouldn t be It is fiction So I decided I would read and rate this book before trying to find out about the real Grace Darling It looks like the author kept to some specific details of Grace Darling s life She s the daughter of the keeper of Longstone Lighthouse in Northumberland England She is a dedicated assistant to her father and in 1838 during a horrific storm they rescue survivors of a shipwreck It is this act that brings her unwanted fame and attention Among the survivors is Sarah Dawson who happens to be the sister of George Emmerson an artist who Grace has met and is drawn to There is a second story line a century later in Rhode Island where nineteen year old and pregnant Matilda has been sent from Ireland to live with a family friend Harriet also a lighthouse keeper until she gives birth There are so many novels with dual story lines in different times I enjoy these if the connection feels real and this was one of those stories This is actually one of the few dual time line books where I enjoyed both timelines eually I think it was because of the wonderful way Gaynor connects them the relationships the lighthouses a locket a painting and definitely the courage of all of the women It was notable that in these alternating narratives of the characters that Grace s Matilda s and Harriet s were in the first person and the others in the third person This made for much intimate connections with the three women The writing is very good in places especially the description of the storm Considering that this wasn t necessarily a short book I read it fairly uickly because I was always interested in finding out A cliche perhaps to say it was captivating but I was totally taken by each of these strong women and how they managed to move forward in spite of things that weren t always easy to face In spite of a revelation towards the end that felt a bit much to me this book is deserving of five stars because I enjoyed it every step of the way I can t say that I ve ever had an affinity to the lighthouses I ve seen but I ll probably think about them in a different light the next time I see one This was a Traveling Sisters read I was a little late to the party but enjoyed everyone s commentsI received an advanced copy of this book from William MorrowHarperCollins through Edelweiss
