At Lighthouse Point: Review

Hi guys! Today I’m bringing you another review. This book was honestly REALLY good, guys. It took me a few chapters to get into, but I LOVED it. There’s actually a blog tour and giveway going on for this book right now, so check back on Celebratelit to find it!

5 stars

Prose: 4/5
Romance: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
Plot: 4/5

Prose:

This was a VERY well-written book! I was pleasantly surprised by the author and her style.

Romance:

This was perfect. Too often a book will lean too far into romance or too far out of romance. But this had just the right mix of romance and plot. It was sweet and believable, as was the other side romances in the story. It was definitely a side plot and not the focus of the plot, but that’s honestly my favorite type of romance.

Characters:

Honestly this book was so good in my eyes and I think one of the elements that made everything else so good was the strength of the characters. Blaine’s history was so rich and realistic, and her entire family was so well-developed and had such a unique relationship.

Plot:

This was also pretty good! While the book wasn’t action or anything meant to have a fast-paced action-filled plot, I think the plot was very engaging. There was a little bit of suspense at times, and there weren’t any parts that dragged or were slower.

Overall:

This was a very well-written and obviously heavily-developed novel. It was definitely worth a read!

Content:

Very little. Mentions of blood and injuries that are very low-key (ex: banging your head on a refrigerator). Mentions of being pregnant (two of the characters are). Mentions of falling in love, kissing and wanting to be kissed. It was all pretty light. Probably 15+

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

10 Curious Facts about Lighthouses

People love lighthouses. There’s just something special about those sturdy sentinels with their beacons of light, patiently sweeping the water, their mournful and haunting wail of a foghorn. Longfollow’s poem, The Lighthouse, written in 1850, captured the allure so well:

And as the evening darkens, lo! how bright,
Through the deep purple of the twilight air,
Beams forth the sudden radiance of its light,
With strange, unearthly splendor in the glare!

“Unearthly splendor.” Wow, doesn’t that hit the nail on the head? A lighthouse, to me, represents a spiritual truth: Someone’s watching out for us, looking out for the dangers ahead, and always glad to welcome us home.

Here are 10 facts about lighthouses that you might not know:

THE FIRST KNOWN LIGHTHOUSE was Egypt’s Pharos of Alexandria, Egypt, built in the third century B.C. The lighthouse was made from a fire on a platform to warn sailors of the port’s entrance. This lighthouse was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

THE OLDEST EXISTING LIGHTHOUSE IN THE WORLD is considered to be La Coruna in Spain that dates from ca. 20 B.C. A Roman lighthouse is located on the Cliffs of Dover in the UK that was constructed in 40 A.D.

THE UNITED STATES IS HOME to more lighthouses than any other country.

THE FIRST LIGHTHOUSE IN AMERICA was at Boston on Little Brewster Island (1716). The first keeper was George Worthylake who, sadly, was drowned, along with his wife and daughter, when returning to the island in 1718.

THE TALLEST LIGHTHOUSE is on Cape Hatteras, NC. Built in 1872, it reached 196 feet tall.

THE FIRST WEST COAST LIGHTHOUSE was built on Alcatraz Island in 1854.

DAYMARKS are the painted colors and patterns (diamonds, spirals and stripes) on lighthouse towers to distinguish them from each other.

LIGHTHOUSE KEEPING was one of the first U.S. government jobs available to women, as far back as the 19th century. Most obtained their position when their husband died or became incapacitated.

THE RANGE OF THE LIGHTHOUSE LIGHT produces a light seen 25 miles at sea.

ABOUT 700 LIGHTHOUSES are still in active use in the United States.

As I wrote the third book in the ‘Three Sisters island’ series, I just had to give that little charred lighthouse its day in the sun. It had patiently played a role in the first two books, waiting for its turn on center stage. Not only did its setting provide a very unexpected “WHAT? How did that happen?” conclusion to the series, it even stole the headline! The undisputed title: At Lighthouse Point.

Thanks for reading! Stay well, stay home, and read.
