SHORTLISTED FOR THE HWA DEBUT CROWN 2018*** A RADIO 2 BOOK CLUB PICK ***Elizabeth grew up in a lighthouse, inseparable from her enigmatic twin sister Emily.

Their father, the lightkeeper, kept a journal of his observations and their daily life.

When those journals are discovered on a shipwrecked boat, many decades later, Elizabeth is living in a retirement home and her eyesight is failing.

She enlists the help of a troubled teenager, Morgan, to read to her, and an unlikely friendship grows between the two.

But as Morgan reads on, Elizabeth discovers that the past revealed is not as she remembers it, and that the journal may contain answers to unexplained events that have haunted her all her life . . . 'A perfect hammock read for those who love the Bronte sisters and Jodi Picoult in equal measure' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
