After her father’s death, Caroline Taylor has grown confident running the Windmill Point Lighthouse. But in 1865 Michigan, women aren’t supposed to have such roles, so it’s only a matter of time before the lighthouse inspector appoints a new keeper–even though Caroline has nowhere else to go and no other job available to her.
Ryan Chambers is a Civil War veteran still haunted by the horrors of battle. He’s secured the position of lighthouse keeper mostly for the isolation--the chance to hide from his past is appealing. He’s not expecting the current keeper to be a feisty and beautiful woman who’s angry with him for taking her job and for his inability to properly run the light. When his failings endanger others, he and Caroline realize he’s in no shape to run the lighthouse, but he's unwilling to let anyone close enough to help. Caroline feels drawn to this wounded soul, but with both of them relying on that single position, can they look past their loss to a future filled with hope…and possibly love?
If you haven’t read love unexpected (and I’d recommend it:D) you won’t be lost if you pick up this one first.
We are introduced to Caroline and we get to see Ryan again (Emma’s brother from love unexpected)
This one was almost better then the first!! Jody touched on addiction and how the only way to fully overcome it is to lean on God. And about casting our worries on God (I loved the fishing analogy she used)
There were a couple turns I didn’t expect, and really annoyed me until they were rectified, but I did know who was causing all the trouble pretty early on:)
