Nine-year-old Hannah doesn't know what to expect when her family moves from the town they've always lived in to an isolated lighthouse on the rugged Newfoundland coast. What she discovers is a life filled with adventure, wonder-and danger.
As Hannah grows into a young lady, she's determined to create the best life possible, despite ever-present adversity. Facing everything from the fury of Mother Nature to illness, the Great Depression, and World War II, Hannah must find the strength to follow her dreams.
When a stunning loss upends her world, Hannah decides to take a bold step along a new path. But at what cost?
In the tradition of Little House on the Prairie and Anne of Green Gables, this novel of a spirited girl growing into a strong woman is based on a true story.
