Product Description

Stranded at Presque Isle port after their steamboat sank, Emma Chambers and her brother, Ryan, couldn't be farther away from security. While Ryan at least can find work, Emma can't even find a place to stay. An unlikely solution arises when the lighthouse keeper, who recently lost his wife and is struggling to raise his young son, arrives in town. A traveling preacher believes they might be the answer to each others' problems, and after a hasty marriage, Emma is headed back to the lighthouse with this handsome but quiet stranger. But nothing in her wandering life has prepared her for suddenly being asked to raise a child and keep a house. Struggling at every turn, Emma also suspects Patrick may be keeping something hidden from her. In town she hears whispers about strange circumstances surrounding his previous wife's death, and it seems as though Emma's answered prayer for a home and family may actually be something much more dangerous.

Publisher's Description

1859
Presque Isle, Michigan

What Is the Secret That Could Shipwreck Both of Their Lives?

All Emma Chambers ever wanted was a home, but when her steamboat sinks just outside Presque Isle, she's left destitute and with no place to stay.

An unlikely solution arises when the lighthouse keeper arrives in town. He's just lost his wife and is having a difficult time caring for his child. So a traveling preacher gets the idea that the keeper and Emma might be the answer to each other's dilemma. After a hasty marriage, she finds herself heading to the lighthouse with this handsome but quiet stranger. Nothing in her aimless life, though, has prepared her for parenting a rambunctious toddler, as well as managing a household.

Emma soon suspects Patrick may be hiding something from her, and then she hears a disturbing rumor about the circumstances surrounding his late wife's death. It seems as if her wish for a home and family of her own could end up leading her once more into turbulent waters.

    After anxiously awaiting the arrival of my advance readers copy I immediately dove into Emma and Patricks story of a gentle love. This is a must read as is all of Jodys books. This one though was different. The character and dialogue was strong but this book also had mystery that kept me reading and wondering what would happen next. I must admit that this story had me hooked in the beginning and kept me up a couple nights. If you love romance, mystery, and lighthouses then get your copy ASAP! Not only was the romance in this and it has Jody all over it, with right amount of passion but it had history. I will never look at a lighthouse the same way. Cannot say enough how much I highly recommend this book. Thanks Jody for always writing such stellar books.

    This story took off at a great pace with Emma's boat sinking and her near drowning. I immediately loved the relationship between her and her brother. When they are rescued and brought to town, Emma's plight continued. Young and single, always desiring a home of her own, it made sense for her to marry Patrick. Still, I did struggle with how quickly the thought was introduced to the two and how they both went through with it.

    That struggle was a very minor blip on my enjoyment of this book. Patrick was so incredibly sweet and true, and yet possessed such strength. I loved seeing the theme of forgiveness woven through his story and his never-failing integrity. Each decision he made was true to his character and made sense with the outside circumstances, even if it didn't immediately seem to. Hedlund made sure to tie up all the threads.

    As for Emma, her journey of finding a home drove all she did. She's loyal and loving, and though she makes mistakes, she learns. Her biggest lesson? Home is found with God. She and Patrick were a pair I won't soon forget.

    All together I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but I shouldn't be surprised. Jody Hedlund has a way of weaving a tale that always pulls you in. She never delivers needless angst, but rather let's the plot develop in an authentic way. And she's great at romance. Like amazing.

    Author Jody Hedlund has done it again. This is the first in her new series called Beacons of Hope although a free ebook (novella), Out of the Storm, wets your appetite and gets the reader ready for Love Unexpected. The author lives up to her reputation - writing a novel which has one shirking ones responsibilities and turning page after page until the reader is disappointed he/she has read the last word on the last page. :)

    The story is woven with grace, second chances, hope, love and just the right amount of suspense. Emma is sweet and innocent and just wants a home of her own. Patrick, the lighthouse keeper, needs a help meet to help care for his son. Patrick has a past he'd like to keep there. However, a particular person from town just won't let Patrick's past stay in the past. Will Patrick give up? Will Emma believe Patrick or a busy body? And what will happen when someone from Patrick's past show up unexpectedly? Purchase the novel....I highly recommend it.

    I received the novel as a gift from the author but am posting this honest review on my own.

    Wow....if you have things to do then don't start this, as you won't want to put it down. I love the characters of Emma and Patrick, and little Josiah is endearing. This story is a perfect example of God's grace and how he remembers our sin no more. I was sorry to see this end, as I wanted more. I like that the characters are based on real people and the history of that time.

    I received a copy of this for my honest review.

    Michigan girl to Michigan girl... Jody, this is a wonderful book!

    Even if I wasn't a Michigan girl, I would think it was pretty wonderful... I'm sure.

    The story is beautiful from beginning to end and just as with all Jody Hedlund novels, the story has strong characters with deep history and bountiful lessons of life and love. I quickly became wrapped up in the story of Emma, her brother, this town and of course, the lighthouse keeper with a secret.

    Great job, Jody! I can't wait to read more lighthouse stories!
