"The Georgian Bay lighthouse's single eye keeps watch over storm and calm, and Marged grew up in its shadow, learning the language of the wind and the trees. There's blustery beauty there, where sea and sky incite each other to mischief--or worse. Garth Hellyer of the Longevity Project doesn't believe Marged was a girl coming of age in the 1890s, but reading her diaries in the same wild and unpredictable location where she wrote them might be enough to cast doubt on his common sense"--Amazon.com.

I can't say that I really enjoyed this book. The descriptions of the Georgian Bay area and the effect it had on Marged, the main character, were great, and the snippets of the love story made me want to know more. However, the whole allusion to Greek mythology and the ghostly little girl made the story murky for me. I felt the melding of all the threads, plus the modern-day scenes on top of the historical ones, was a little contrived. I did read to the end just to see how it was all pulled together, and unhappily was left very much wanting. Many others on Goodreads loved it but it was just not my cup of tea.

What an awesome debut novel from the author. Such a beautiful, emotional story with a mix of romance, historical fiction, adventure and supernatural. If you have ever been to the Georgian Bay area, you will really appreciate this book. This will be one I will re-read for sure
