pregnant Matilda Emmerson has been sent aw. 45 Stars I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship Louisa May AlcottWhen I was a child there was an older man a former sea Captain who lived in a tiny cabin overlooking one of the lakes in our town He got by on doing odd jobs in the neighborhood and on whatever else he might have received I know my father had somewhat of a soft spot for him where my mother disliked his rough unmannered ways Through him I heard stories of life on the wild seas and about lighthouses being a beacon to those at sea and for him perhaps like a parent welcoming a child home Because of him and his love for lighthouses I have always loved them for many years from afar but later on I began to try and explore as many as I could So for me this was another exploration into a new lighthouse through the pages of a story that is based on a true story The story of Grace Darling a twenty two year old young woman living in a lighthouse on the Farne Islands in 1838 her father the lighthouse keeper and she the lighthouse keeper s daughter A title that would imply she was only that a daughter but she assisted in the running of the lighthouse In fact she wants no other life than this As Father is on first watch I leave the comforting light of the lamps and enter the dark interior of the staircase My sister Thomasin used to say she imagined the stairwell was a long vein running from the heart of the lighthouse In one way or another we have all attached human ualities to these old stone walls so that it has almost become another member of the family not just a building to house usA storm always stirs a desire for everyone to be safe inside the lighthouse walls but my sisters and brothers are dispersed along the coast now like flotsam caught on the tide and carried to some other place When a horrendous storm causes a the shipwreck of the Forfarshire she convinces her father that they must come to the aid of those she can see shipwrecked on the rocks and they rescue the nine survivors risking their own lives in the process When this news becomes public it spreads further and soon people are flocking to see this brave young woman Among the survivors is a woman named Sarah Dawson sister to artist George Emmerson whom Grace has met He becomes one of many artists desiring to capture her portrait he is already captured by herThere is an alternating story in an another time a hundred years hence that centers around Mathilda whose story begins with her leaving her home of Cobh Ireland and carrying a secret with her to Newport Rhode Island Her secret will become obvious as the months pass but her parents in Ireland will avoid the public shame she would cause them had she stayed Not that it was by her choice her mother has sent her to live with a family friend Harriet in yet another lighthouse Very poignant life affirming occasionally heart wrenching but also heartwarming historical fiction a novel reminding us of the best that is within us and inspiring us with the stories of these young women who didn t allow their fears to conuer them but who rose to the occasion with the courage to face their future
