Publisher's Summary

CBA best-selling author Colleen Coble sets this romantic tale in 1907, along California’s rugged coast.

This was a good read

Although spends the first twenty something years living as someone else. She is rescued by her uncle and comes to live and work with a man who's son has epilepsy. Her dog knows what to do to keep the boy safe and convinces his grandfather who is actually the heroine's father that the dog should stay in the house with him. Her faith in god and belief that there is good in everyone comes in handy on many occasions when she is attacked by people who don't want her father to know who she is. The story has a lot of twists and turns but they are not so twisted that you can't follow the story. This is worth the credit if you want a good story to listen to on a long drive or a rainy day.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review via audiobook boom.

Very Good!<br /><br />

I've yet to read a book by Colleen Coble that I didn't enjoy. This one didn't disappoint. It was hard to put it down. The only thing that was a distraction, was the break between chapters. They were excessively long, leaving one wondering if the story had come to an end for some reason. If there was a way to shorten up that pause, it would be a great Improvement to the audio version. Other than that, the narrator did an excellent job, and the story was great!

Too predictable

Although a nice story, it lacked much excitement and used the epilogue to tie up the loose ends, and very loosely at that. Who would stand around at their wedding reception making decisions as to where they would live or how they would support themselves?
Even the title is somewhat misleading. The lead character is a light keeper's daughter, but she could have been the baker's daughter and the story would really not change.

Great Listen

We love the way Colleen Coble tells a story. Just when you have it figured out, you dont! Cristina Moore did an excellent job of narration. Husband & wife share book time. both of us liked this one.
