The Lightkeeper's Daughter, A Book Review

The Lightkeeper's Daughter
By Colleen Coble

Young Addie Sullivan’s life is turned upside down when a stranger claims she is a relative of his and takes her away to discover the truth of her heritage while posing as a teacher in her potential family’s home. While there, she learns about true acceptance, true love and that people are not always what they seem. She also learns to rely on God to determine her path and learns to listen to His guidance even when her circumstances seem to dictate another course.

The story has the right mix of mystery, romance and suspense. I had a hard time putting it down. Some of the characters are formulaic and others are not fully developed, but the story is so engaging, you won’t care!

I’ve never read much Christian romance/mystery before, but after this novel, I think I’ll start reading it a lot more. It was a great escape.
