Also the owner of: http://silversolara.blogspot.com I enjoy reading historical fiction and mystery. I live in Pennsylvania and am a retired business teacher.
A seaman's life for me.
Hannah was worthy to be a seaman, and Annie/Blue turned into a seaman as well as a pirate.
Hannah and Annie knew nothing about each other, but they had things in common: both were headstrong for women of the 1800’s and they both loved the sea.
THE LIGHTKEEPER'S WIFE goes back and forth between Hannah's life and Annie/Blue's connecting both characters’ lives without their knowing.
THE LIGHTKEEPER'S WIFE is about enduring life and living a passion. You will feel Hannah's frustration as she tries to keep up the lighthouse after her husband has gone missing and only has Billy to help her.
The descriptions Ms. Johnson has of boat rescues and being at sea are amazing. Great detail in the telling of the story and the book's events keeps you reading.
I enjoyed THE LIGHTKEEPER'S WIFE. If you enjoy the 1800's and seafaring content, you will enjoy THE LIGHTKEEPER'S WIFE.
Gorgeous cover, fantastic writing, and great research, but my rating is going to be a 3/5 because of the disconnection with some parts of the book and for the length of time it took me to figure out what was going on and the length of time it took me to figure out who the characters were.
I received this book free of charge and without compensation from the publisher in return for an honest review.
