Overview
1865
Windmill Point, Michigan
Can She Forgive the Hurting Man Who Costs Her the Role She Loves?

After her father's death, Caroline Taylor has grown confident running the Windmill Point Lighthouse. But in 1865 Michigan, women aren't supposed to have such roles, so it's only a matter of time before the lighthouse inspector appoints a new keeper--even though Caroline has nowhere else to go and no other job available to her.
Ryan Chambers is a Civil War veteran still haunted by the horrors of battle. He's secured the position of lighthouse keeper mostly for the isolation--the chance to hide from his past is appealing. He's not expecting the current keeper to be a feisty and beautiful woman who's angry with him for taking her job and for his inability to properly run the light. When his failings endanger others, he and Caroline realize he's in no shape to run the lighthouse, but he's unwilling to let anyone close enough to help. Caroline feels drawn to this wounded soul, but with both of them relying on that single position, can they look past their loss to a future filled with hope...and possibly love?

Caroline Taylor has helped her father tend the lighthouse at Windmill Point on Lake St. Clair for years, but when her father drowns in a storm, she and her younger siblings—Tessa, just turned 18; Sarah, who is 13 and critically ill; and 10-year-old twin brothers—must leave the lighthouse and the job she loves. When a man arrives to take her position, she knows right off he is in no shape to care for the light. Ryan Chambers is fresh from the Civil War’s Iron Brigade, wounded in body and spirit and hoping the lighthouse job will help him heal. Caroline and Ryan’s first meeting doesn’t bode well, but as they begin to know each other, each finds a kindred heart in the other. But throw in Ryan’s addictions, an unlikely suitor for Caroline, dangerous happenings around the lighthouse, a bully’s threats, and an intimate betrayal, and the road to wholeness is nearly ruined. Readers will find a tangle of plot lines that may cause whiplash, but Hedlund has gathered fans since her career began with The Preacher’s Bride, and this third in the Beacons of Hope series will surely add to her base. Agent: Rachelle Gardner, Books & Such Literary Management. (June)
