Lighthouse Paradox – a novel

Written By: Gary on September 2, 2004 One Comment

I know, I never review books enough, even when I mention I’m reading them I forget to post info later…

I know the folks who wrote this one so I was a little more motivated. It takes place on Drummond Island off the east coast of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The authors grew up there and one of them still lives there. I was at D. Ann’s place this weekend and noticed the framed picture in the living room (which has been there for at least a year) was a larger landscape version of picture that they had commissioned for the cover of the book. I’ve seen this a bunch of times and I just finally made the connection. But I digress…

My biggest problem (in talking about books) is telling enough but not giving the story away. It’s an historically accurate portrayal of life on the Island, life is different there than it is on the mainland. It’s a small-town people story, with some romance, a mystery and even a UFO all wrapped up into one story. It spans 60 years with several families stories intertwined as they try to figure out al the connections…

Actually, I totally digressed here (it’s ages later and I didn’t really review the book, but it’s too late for that now).

This is the first in a series of novels that take place in Michigan with the main character of Jill Traynor who will eventually become the lead character in future books. The books get better and better so if you like this one, keep reading the others…
