From the Vault

Today's book from the vault is:

HP #887

ISBN 978-1-60260-700-2


From the Back Cover:

Noah just wants to start over.

Captain Noah Kennebrae can no longer deal with the shame and guilt from the wreck of his ship. So he changes his name and takes a job as assistant lighthouse keeper on Sutton Island, heedless of the marriage contract his grandfather has arranged for him. No woman in her right mind would want to marry him now, anyway.

Desperate to escape the calculating grasp of her father and his cronies, Anastasia Michaels leaves her home to take the unlikely job of housekeeper on a remote island. Knowing how terrified of water she is, surely her father would never think to look for her there.

But neither Nick nor Annie considered that God’s hand might be at work in their lives. When they each take things into their own hands, He must work a miracle to bring them back to His original plan.

From the book:

“I haven’t had a chance to thank you properly for saving my life. And I’m sorry for being sick on the dock.” Her delicate ears reddened, and her gaze dropped.

Uncomfortable, both with being thanked for something he’d done instinctively, and with the protective feelings expanding in his chest, he shrugged and half-turned away from her.

“Don’t mention it.” He waved away her thanks. “You’ve seen the most dangerous places on the island. Stay away from the cliff, the fuel stores, and the tower. And it’s against the rules for you to enter the lighthouse without one of the keepers. That should keep you safe. And considering the state of this morning’s breakfast, I’ll stay away from the kitchen. That should keep me safe.” He grinned, waiting to hear her laugh.

She gasped, dropped her arms to her sides, and stalked off toward the house.

So much for his attempt at humor.

This week my son and I are working our way through his yearly standardized tests. These timed tests run the gamut of subjects. He tends to like the math and cognitive abilities tests best. My favorite was always the social studies/history section.

So, what was/is your favorite subject in school?


  1. I really have two favorites...English and Bookkeeping.

  2. Well, since I teach it I would have to say English!

  3. My favorite subject was history...and still is! But I also loved English and pretty much everything except science :)

  4. If I remember right, I seemed to like social studies and geography.

  5. I added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit mine and become a follower if you want to.

    God Bless You :-)


  6. MM is such a great book!

    Let's see...favorite subject in was reading, of course :D I didn't start to truly appreciate history and science until after I graduated. Go figure.
