The Lightkeeper's Wife by Sarah Anne Johnson

A seaman's life for me.

Hannah was worthy to be a seaman, and Annie/Blue turned into a seaman as well as a pirate​.

Hannah and Annie knew nothing about each other, but they had things in common:  both​ were headstrong for women of the 1800’s and they both loved the sea.

THE LIGHTKEEPER'S WIFE goes back and forth between Hannah's life and Annie/Blue's connecting both characters’ lives without their knowing.

THE LIGHTKEEPER'S WIFE is about enduring life and living a passion.  You will feel Hannah's frustration as she tries to keep up the lighthouse after her husband has gone missing and only has Billy to help her.

The descriptions Ms. Johnson has of boat rescues and being at sea are amazing.  Great detail in the telling of the story and the book's events keeps you reading.

I enjoyed THE LIGHTKEEPER'S WIFE.  If you enjoy the 1800's and seafaring content, you will enjoy THE LIGHTKEEPER'S WIFE.  

Gorgeous cover, fantastic writing, and great research, but my rating is going to be a 3/5 because of the disconnection with some parts of the book and for the length of time it took me to figure out what was going on and the length of time it took me to figure out who the characters were.
I received this book free of charge and without compensation from the publisher in return for an honest review.​



  1. This sounds like a good story, but I too lose interest when I have to try and figure out what's going on rather than it running smoothly.
    Good review.

  2. Thank you, Ann.

    It was good, but a little disconnected.

    Thanks for stopping.

    I love the cover.

  3. I think I would enjoy this one Elizabeth, the descriptions alone make me excited.

  4. Thanks for stopping, kimbacaffeinate.

    The writing was good, but the characters were a bit confusing. There is a surprise at the end.

    Let me know what you think if you read it.

  5. This one sounds good! Too bad it wasn't all smooth for you. But at last you were still able to enjoy it.

  6. It wasn't bad, Laura.

    The cover drew me in. :)

    Thanks for stopping.
