The only real issue I had with Lighthouse Bay was that Libby Slater was a mistress and that the mystery she ends up dealing with is the mystery of her dead lover. I think this one would have been better suited if the mystery was connected to our main character in a better way and not by being an adulator.
Ok now the good! This book is in the POV of the current time as well as the 1900's, which works out wonderfully!
But this story is also told by a middle man with no real connection to the story. It was completely told by the wrong person!
Both these stories tell the tale of two woman whom are trying to find a way to mend their hearts after loss.
FROM THE AUTHOR OF WILDFLOWER HILL, THIS BREATHTAKING NOVEL TRAVELS MORE THAN A CENTURY BETWEEN TWO LOVE STORIES SET IN THE AUSTRALIAN SEASIDE TOWN OF LIGHTHOUSE BAY.
In 1901, a ship sinks off the coast of Lighthouse Bay in Australia. The only survivor is Isabella Winterbourne—escaping her loveless marriage and the devastating loss of her son—who clutches a priceless gift meant for the Australian Parliament. Suddenly, this gift could be her ticket to a new life, free from the bonds of her husband and his overbearing family.
One hundred years later, Libby Slater leaves her life in Paris to return to her hometown of Lighthouse Bay. Living in the cottage that was purchased by her recently passed lover, she hopes to heal her broken heart and reconcile with her sister, Juliet. Libby did something so unforgivable twenty years ago, Juliet is unsure if she can ever trust her sister again.
In this adventurous love story spanning centuries, both Isabella and Libby must learn that letting go of the past is the only way to move into the future.
