All too familiar with a life lived in isolation, young Lillian is thrilled when her father is transferred to a new lighthouse station; the reason being: another family is stationed there, and she gets the chance to make the acquaintance of their young two sons. With the opportunity to finally start enjoying somewhat of a normal social life, Lillian couldn't be more pleased with the promising new direction her life has taken. However, she soon finds her newfound joy to be quite short-lived when her mother begins a long, painful descent into what appears to be insanity. As her mind slowly wastes away, Lillian's mother begins recounting people, places, and experiences that all come as a complete surprise to her - but not as surprising as the long-hidden family secrets that they're soon revealed to be. Now, with full knowledge of her parents' seamy past, Lillian struggles to come to grips with the difficult truths of her family's shady history... Surprisingly fast-paced and engrossing, The Girl In The Lighthouse is quite the engaging read. With a rich tapestry of characters, author Roxane Sanford paints a vivid picture of a life filled with unexpected twists and turns, the unpredictability of which is sure to hold the interest of any reader. Furthermore, her central storyline is taut and compelling, and her ability to keep the reader guessing at the real truth until the very end is quite masterful. A highly rewarding, entertaining literary treat, The Girl In The Lighthouse is recommended reading for lovers of imaginative, well-crafted stories with the superb balance of action and character development. Be on the lookout for more from this promising new storytelling talent. Tracy Moore Apex Reviews

What a wonderful story. I could not put the book down and read it straight through. The story ends, leaving you to want more. It has many twist and turns and keeps you wondering what will happen next.

We all need to escape for a while into a place different from our own. The author of this book takes you through the life an amazing young girl who will captivate you with all of her life's "riptides". Her descriptive narrative is very intense and leaves you wanting more. The twists and turns are so unique and much more interesting from the usual novel. Please note **** I normally don't take the time to write a review because I don't feel as strong as I do about this book. If your looking to escape for awhile into "Lillian's" world you better hold will be a wild ride. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
