Though her mind is still sharp, Elizabeth’s eyes have failed. No longer able to linger over her beloved books or gaze at the paintings that move her spirit, she fills the void with music and memories of her family—a past that suddenly becomes all too present when her late father’s journals are found amid the ruins of an old shipwreck.
With the help of Morgan, a delinquent teenager performing community service, Elizabeth goes through the diaries, a journey through time that brings the two women closer together. Entry by entry, these unlikely friends are drawn deep into a world far removed from their own—to Porphyry Island on Lake Superior, where Elizabeth’s father manned the lighthouse seventy years before.
As the words on these musty pages come alive, Elizabeth and Morgan begin to realize that their fates are connected to the isolated island in ways they never dreamed. While the discovery of Morgan’s connection sheds light onto her own family mysteries, the faded pages of the journals hold more questions than answers for Elizabeth, and threaten the very core of who she is.
A list of the years best reads would definitely not be complete without this little gem of a book, it might even be the best book I read all year? But that is so hard to say ….
If I could I would give this book 6 perfect stars!!!
This really was such a remarkable book, I’m sure my words cannot do it justice…. The characters were so well-developed, the writing so extremely vivid, the pacing perfect, It just met or exceeded everything I expect from a wonderful book…. it was a book about secrets, family, bonds, love, And so much more…. The book took place during two different time frames, both of which I found equally intriguing…. The part of this book set in the past took place on the isolated banks of Lake Superior, the author made me feel as though I was there, shoot I think I even could feel the snow… but what I enjoyed even more than the setting was the amazing bond between the sisters Elizabeth and Emily…. some of the sacrifices the sisters made for each other were downright heartbreaking….
The present part of this book took place when Elizabeth was older and losing her site and Morgan a teenager with a troubled past; was reading her father’s journals to her…. The bond between Elizabeth and Morgan grew to be very special and they definitely learned they had much more in common then they would have ever thought….. and I learned that some secrets are better kept in the past…. as I said my words cannot do this book justice, you are definitely going to need to read it for yourself!
This was my first Traveling Sister read and it could have not been more special! Thank you so much too Jaline, Brenda, Lindsey, Jennifer, and Nikki for this wonderful experience! You all definitely added so much to my enjoyment of this book! Looking forward to many more reads with all the sisters!XO
