Been on a Susan Wiggs kick lately, and made it through re-reads of Charm School, A Summer Affair, At the Queen’s Summons, In Our Dreams, etc. But, I forgot just how refreshing The Lightkeeper was.
With a pregnant Irish heroine who understands the hero’s sadness but mocks his brooding ways, with characters that acknowledge the racism that surrounds them, with a female doctor and enjoyable side characters, it was such a fun read. The only downside was the villainy (which, honestly, the book could have done without).
