Publisher's Summary

CBA best-selling author Colleen Coble sets this romantic tale in 1907, along California’s rugged coast. As 25-year-old Adeline struggles to determine if she’s really the long-lost daughter of a rich man—shipwrecked and presumed dead two decades ago—she becomes deeply immersed in mystery, danger, and love.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

With her beloved father now dead, and only Abbie and her spiteful mother left tending the lighthouse, Abbie decides to go with the man who calls himself her uncle . . . to find out if she really is the long lost daughter of the rich man he has told her about . . Thus begins a journey of discovery, pain, disillusionment and an ushering into a world that Abbie never knew existed . . . but true to herself, Abbie's spunk and deep conviction do not fail her . . . and neither does her God . . . always hoping, always trying to see the best in others, Abbie faces down the truth of what life has given her, without an ounce of self pity . . . clinging hard to that which is good and right, and pressing forward . . .

    YES! Our society has put away all propriety in true courtship; this book was refreshing and a compelling read.

    I enjoyed the mystery, the classy courtship and the intertwined journey with God.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't stop listening! Great narration!

    "Sweet story, a little heavy on unnecessary details"

    A sweet romance set around a mystery. Christina Moore did a great job portraying emotion but had a little trouble with the male voices. I found that there was a lot of time spent on describing and explaining little domestic details like dress making and pouring tea. In my opinion it was too much and took away from the mystery and intrigue. There was a lot of time spent on the relationship between the main characters and it seemed as if the mystery was going no where until it did and then was solved. I would have liked to have seen less unnecessary details and more time fleshing out the mystery. Over all it's a pleasant listen if you are more interested in romance then mystery.
