The Lighthouse Summer is book two of The Velvet Bag Memoirs. The story opens during a summer vacation in which nine-year-old twins Asa and Prentiss Fallmark spend time with their eccentric aunt, Eugenia. She lives at a lighthouse in Serendipity with her granddaughters and the twins' cousins Sandy and Twinkletoes. The brother and sister discover that they are part of a rare breed, human sprites, and learn how to use their special powers. They meet many new friends, who provide the children with adventures in which they must use their minds and imaginations to overcome conflict. Explorations take them through an aquifer to an oasis in the middle of a desert, and to the discovery of treasure belonging to a good pirate, Barnabus Crimp. The twins emerge from the summer a little older and much wiser, looking forward to the hints they receive regarding next summer's adventures.
