THE LIGHTKEEPER by SUSAN WIGGS

Summary

Once, the sea took everything he loved . . .

Jesse Morgan is a man hiding from the pain of his past, a man who has vowed never to give his heart again. Keeper of a remote lighthouse along a rocky and dangerous coast, he has locked himself away from everything but his bitter memories.

Now the sea has given him a second chance.

A beautiful stranger washes ashore, the sole survivor of a shipwreck. Penniless and pregnant, Mary Dare is a woman who carries painful memories of her own.

With laughter, hope and joy, Mary and her child bring light into the dark corners of Jesse's world. Soon friendship turns to passion and passion becomes love. And together they must fight the secrets from the past that threaten to destroy all they hold dear.

Additional Information

"Jesse Morgan, isolated by sense of duty and years of self- imposed penance, is lighthouse keeper of Cape Disappointment in Washington territory, ca. 1876. A simple log entry, "Recovered one survivor, a female...," will change his life forever. With mythic styling, Wiggs creates a tempest-tossed, illiterate, pregnant young Irishwoman, Mary Dare, who will teach Jesse that life is for friendship, forgiveness and compassion. To build trust, each must share secrets and confront fears, romance tropes that Wiggs choreographs masterfully. Charming secondary characters add vitality with their tales and sea legends, but most assertive is the captivating sense of place, one that creates an atmospheric energy from start to finish." --Publisher's Weekly
