Her family's lighthouse home is an island of enchantment for 13-year-old Eliza Wells. Surrounded by whales, seals, and pelicans, she avoids the problems that beset the mainland: like the increasingly heated conflict between the local town's white and Chinese citizens. This compelling historical novel by the award-winning author of Shadow Spinner is based on actual 19th-century events. Narrator Christina Moore voices all the confusion, compassion, and strength of a heroine willing to risk what she loves most in order to do what she knows is right.

Professional reviews

"Many years later and many miles from the sea, Eliza tells her brother, Andrew John, of the time when she lived by the sea and helped to tend her father's lighthouse. It was a time of hard lessons of friendship, family, and the world. Christina Moore is a fine narrator for this story of California in the late 1800s. Moore's voice has the youthful earnestness of 13-year-old Eliza experiencing events that change her life forever. Hesitation, reticence, disappointment, resiliency, and freshness are among the tools in her "voice box." Above all, she mirrors Eliza's conviction that love, beauty, and hope exist in a world that also includes great sadness. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
