About this title

Synopsis:

As a child, Peter O' Banyon's life changed irrevocably 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. World War II takes Peter away from the lighthouse and his beloved Anna, but he isn't prepared for the ravages of war and the brutality that can kill a man's soul. But Peter is tested even further when he returns home. Can he learn the lesson of the lighthouse keeper? And at the end of his life, can he pass that lesson on to his daughter?

Review:

Off the coast of Massachusetts, a sturdy lighthouse and its inhabitants weather the storms of life. Over three generations, the O'Banyon clan finds solace in the firm walls of the Port Hope lighthouse, and learns to "keep a light on" for each other.

In the present day, daughter Kathleen O'Banyon returns to be with her aging father, Peter, in the now retired lighthouse. As Peter reminisces about the past and his childhood with Uncle Billie, we are drawn into a family saga full of tragedy and inspiration. Through two world wars, illness, and premature deaths, the O'Banyon family has learned to trust and love fearlessly. As the characters and the readers soon learn, to be a good lighthouse keeper you must take care of not only those you love, but the "light inside yer bosom," as well.

Not for the schmaltz-allergic crowd, this nostalgic feast of emotion and sincerity could warm up your heart on an arctic vacation. Like Nicholas Sparks, James Michael Pratt knows where the heartstrings are, and plays them with all the subtlety of Tchaikovsky. But go ahead--no one is watching. Pull up the covers and let the sappiness seduce you! --Nancy R.E. O'Brien
