The Lightkeeper's Daughters by Jean E. Pendziwol

Into the Wild

Read The Lightkeeper's Daughters Online Free - Though her mind is still sharp, Elizabeth's eyes have failed. No longer able to linger over her beloved books or gaze at the paintings that move her spirit, she fills the void with music and memories of her family—a past that suddenly becomes all too present when her late father's journals are found amid the ruins of an old shipwreck.

With the help of Morgan, a delinquent teenager performing community service, Elizabeth goes through the diaries, a journey through time that brings the two women closer together. Entry by entry, these unlikely friends are drawn deep into a world far removed from their own—to Porphyry Island on Lake Superior, where Elizabeth’s father manned the lighthouse seventy years before.

As the words on these musty pages come alive, Elizabeth and Morgan begin to realize that their fates are connected to the isolated island in ways they never dreamed. While the discovery of Morgan's connection sheds light onto her own family mysteries, the faded pages of the journals hold more questions than answers for Elizabeth, and threaten the very core of who she is.

The Lightkeeper's Daughters is a tender book about sisters' love, family, secrets, and lighthouse keeping on the Porphyry Island on Lake Superior. It covers a long period of time, from the WWI to present time. Like many others, I love lighthouses, so I was drawn to this book. I haven't read anyth...

Loved this, listened to first half while strolling the beach and poking in tide pools, it was the perfect companion for a foggy morn, lake superior holds all the same slippery charms as the sea. Atmospheric, rich and engaging with gorgeous writing. A real page turner too, with only thirty minutes...

This may be the best book that I've read this year. It's not an over-the-top type of book, but a story with heart and humor about a remarkable family with many secrets. The story is about first, Elizabeth and Emily Livingstone (who is mute) the light keeper's daughters. It deals with secrets in th...

I wish I had read the back cover first. The whole time I was reading this book about Morgan, a troubled teenage girl in foster care who meets Elizabeth, an elderly blind woman with a fascinating history, while she's doing restitution at the senior care center, I knew I had read this storyline befo...

I received a cope of this book through the giveaways. I enjoyed the book so much more than the initial chapters had me think I would. While it was rather predictable it was a sweet if somewhat tragic touching story and that keep me reading to see exactly how it would play out. I liked Elizabeth a...
