This is a story that takes place on Presque Isle, Michigan. There is a lighthouse romance and pirates. Who would have thought there were pirates in Michigan on a Great Lake. I had never read anything about that before. This really kept my interest throughout the whole book. There were some twists and turns that helped the romance and hurt it. People need to learn to talk and listen. I really look forward to reading more in this series called Beacons of Hope. I received this through Bethany House for a fair and honest opinion.http://www.librarything.com/work/15476330/117987856

Presque Isle, Michigan
What Is the Secret That Could Shipwreck Both of Their Lives?
All Emma Chambers ever wanted was a home, but when her steamboat sinks just outside Presque Isle, she’s left destitute and with no place to stay.
An unlikely solution arises when the lighthouse keeper arrives in town. He’s just lost his wife and is having a difficult time caring for his child. So a traveling preacher gets the idea that the keeper and Emma might be the answer to each other’s dilemma. After a hasty marriage, she finds herself heading to the lighthouse with this handsome but quiet stranger. Nothing in her aimless life, though, has prepared her for parenting a rambunctious toddler, as well as managing a household.
Emma soon suspects Patrick may be hiding something from her, and then she hears a disturbing rumor about the circumstances surrounding his late wife’s death. It seems as if her wish for a home and family of her own could end up leading her once more into turbulent waters.
