The Martins take refuge in a lighthouse off the East coast after Amelia’s father is stripped of his title and career. Tension between her parents, whose political views differ to the extreme, put a heavy strain on Amelia as she works to keep the lighthouse running and her family together.
Historical fiction was one of my favorite things about being homeschooled. It technically counted as a part of our history homework. I could curl up and read about a girl who had to sell pig bristles to make money, or sisters who supported the troops by sewing coats for cute boys. In a way, history was exciting and unimaginable as any fantasy world.
