The Lightkeeper's Daughter - Paige Winship Dooly

HP 903
ISBN 978-1-60260-883-2

Hollan doesn’t have much choice.

When her father disappears after a hurricane, Hollan scrambles to prove she can manage an island and care for a lighthouse on her own. That would be difficult enough for any woman, but Hollan is partially blind. When family members insist she either marry the man who once deserted her or move back to town, Hollan agrees to the marriage against her better judgment.

Jacob isn’t sure what to expect from Hollan, knowing the tragic circumstances that caused her blindness and sent him on a three-year quest for justice. But he knows he still loves her, and if she’ll have him, he’ll care for her from now on.

When danger threatens again, Hollan won’t just wait around for protection this time. Can Jacob prove that he didn’t desert her—and that he is worthy of her love and trust?

PAIGE WINSHIP DOOLY enjoys living in the warm panhandle of Florida with her family, after having grown up in the sometimes extremely cold Midwest. She is happily married to her high school sweetheart, Troy, and they have six home schooled children. Their oldest son, Josh, now lives in Colorado, while the newest blessing, Jetty, rounds out the family in a wonderful way. The whole family is active in Village Baptist Church. Paige has always loved to write. She feels her love of writing is a blessing from God, and she hopes that readers will walk away with a spiritual impact on their life and a smile on their face.

What is your favorite season of the year?


  1. Mine is late autumn when the sizzling hot days finally cool off and we head into Thanksgiving and then Christmas. In Tucson, we don't have a typical fall though, not many leaves turn color and float to the ground. Often our trees are still dropping leaves until Christmas.

  2. I love summer. There is nothing like sunny days, going barefoot, reading in a hammock, delicious fruit, the twitter of birds and flowers in full bloom.

  3. The book sounds interesting. I'm thinking jerk and then find out he was fighting for justice. My kind of hero.

    I'm torn between spring and fall. Not too hot, not too cold. Just right.

  4. I love lighthouses and look forward to reading this book! ~ Although I do love Spring, I'd have to say my very favorite season is Autumn. I always feel "energized" when our hot, humid weather here in Georgia turns cool and crisp. And I love the beautiful Autumn leaves! :)
    Blessings, Patti Jo

  5. Merry, where do you live? Your summers sound heavenly! Here we rush from air conditioned cars to air conditioned buildings.

    We run from air-conditioner to air-conditioner here, too, Jeri! Though I agree Merry's version sounds wonderful. I like winter better now that we're in the South and don't have the harsh winters we had in the Mid-West.

    Patti Jo, your description of Autumn sounds like my kind of weather, too. I think we have about the same weather as you here in the panhandle of Florida.

    Shannon--lol--I think you'll really like the hero. He is a really good guy. Very patient with his leading lady. He has to be. She has a way of trying his nerves.

    Erica, I do not envy you those MN winters! I'd have to be a snowbird if I lived up that way!

    And Linda, spring is wonderful, too. A time of rebirth and newness. Love it! Thanks, everyone, for reading the post! I hope you enjoy the story.
