Like the deep dark sorrows of past in a pearl of sea. This book 6 stars it, those 3 stars have nothing on iq beauty, past, and a midst of legend lore folk let alone things of the future like electronic voice phenomenon. 5 stars, you go girl. Just wish i could ask a question or 2 in reguards to things im working on, oh well, you cant meet everyone. well done, im loving this book so much cause i love lighthouses and novels and its one of my favorite books written very intelligently yet flowing and mysterious. Theres a hint of familiar human touch to it too, its not just another documentary on facts, its passion in a person that saw the lighthouses we get to enjoy through her eyes. History and beauty that may otherwise have been lost. Stories of ghosts some never heard of and very real accounts of the most beautiful lighthouses on the entire planet left. Ride the sea myst let the foam roam, flesh becomes water, lighthouses become bone long after were here.
