from the New York Times bestselling author of The Last Valentine

When he was a child, Peter O'Banyon's life changed forever when his family was killed in a car accident. He was sent to live with his uncle Billie, the keeper of the Port Hope Lighthouse in Massachusetts.

From Billie he learns the secret of keeping love alive - even when tragedy strikes-and he discovers how Billie himself was put to a test as a young man. World War II takes Peter away from the lighthouse and his beloved wife, Anna, but he isn't prepared for the ravages of war and the brutality that can kill a mans soul.

Peter is tested even further when he returns home and faces a tragedy that almost destroys him. Can he learn the lesson of the lighthouse keeper . . . and at the end of his life, can he pass on what he has learned to his own daughter?

Moving, poignant, hopeful, and heartbreaking, The Lighthouse Keeper will keep the story of the O'Banyon family-their loves and their tragedies-in your hearts forever. Hard cover, 257 pages
