Publisher's Description

Lighthouses have long been the symbol of salvation, warning sailors away from dangerous rocks and shallow waters.
Along the Great Lakes, America’s inland seas, lighthouses played a vital role in the growth of the nation. They shepherded settlers traveling by water to places that had no roads. These beacons of light required constant tending even in remote and often dangerous places. Brave men and women battled the elements and loneliness to keep the lights shining. Their sacrifice kept goods and immigrants moving. Seven romances set between 1883 and 1911 bring hope to these lonely keepers and love to weary hearts.

Ava Ryan’s father has passed, leaving her alone, and ill, to tend the light with nowhere else to go.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Pegg Thomas
Located in: Ossineke
Submitted: August 10, 2018

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm Pegg Thomas, one of the seven authors in this collection.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Born and bred in the great state of Michigan, almost fully surrounded by the Great Lakes, I wanted to showcase them and some of their history in a Barbour historical romance collection.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope readers will enjoy the lovely romances in this collection, but that they will also take away a bit of the majesty and dangers of the Great Lakes. The lighthouses played such an important part in safely guiding sailors across our freshwater inland seas. They helped usher pioneers into new lands and carried out a wealth of raw materials to the mills back east. Without them, our country would not have grown and expanded at the rate it did during the mid-1800s and well into the early 1900s.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  It's always such an honor to work with other Christian authors. This collection was no exception! And writing about the Great Lakes? That was a labor of love.
