Great book, simple, peaceful, beautiful friendship in the making, I love the transparency and honesty of Ann’s Mom toward her own daughter, she sees her weakness and yet seems so patient with it, I actually read this on my own and really enjoyed it

This story made me want to move to an island with a lighthouse! My kids loved the mystery surrounding this new island life! We also loved the fact that the girls in this story were homeschooled! It’s not often that we come across wonderful stories where the children are homeschooled!


My girl loved it.

Level 5

Ann doesn’t know much about the world outside her island, and that’s just how she likes it. She is the lighthouse keeper’s daughter, and the cry of seagulls, the wild foaming sea, and the sturdy lighthouse tower are all she’s ever known. She resents the “summer people” who come to picnic on the island because they don’t know anything about the sea or her way of life. Ann’s world gets turned upside down when Betsy comes to the island to stay with her grandmother. Betsy is a timid city girl who knows much more about apartments and traffic than crabs and boats. Together, Ann and Betsy learn that the world is much bigger than they thought, and that friendship can be found in the most unlikely places.
