Summary

Elizabeth's eyes have failed. She can no longer read the books she loves or see the paintings that move her, but her mind remains sharp, and music fills the vacancy left by her blindness.

When her father's journals are discovered on a shipwrecked boat, she enlists the help of a delinquent teen, Morgan, to read to her. As an unlikely friendship grows between them, Elizabeth is carried back to her childhood home - the lighthouse on Porphyry Island, Lake Superior - and to the memory of her enigmatic twin sister, Emily.

But for Elizabeth, the faded pages of her father's journals reveal more secrets than she anticipates.

awful audible

Whilst a good story totally spoiled by narration. Mispronounced words , repeating of sentences and an apparent change of narrator around 2/3 rds of the way through. The worst audible download in several yeara.

Enchanting

I loved the story with its unexpected twists. It's a shame some lines were repeated in the reading as it jolted you out of the feelings and imagery conjured up by the prose. Will definitely look for more by this author.

Wonderful story

I really enjoyed this story from start to finish. So rare for a book to end this well.
I just wish the author had more adult fiction to read.

excellent

This is a lovely book. It's a little bit different and I didn't know what was coming. It is beautifully written. I loved it.

Brilliant story, poor editing

I really enjoyed the story, but the poor editing was irritating - many mistakes still present with the corrected version repeated afterwards.
