    Outstanding book As a local resident of Groton, I am very familiar with Race Rock Lighthouse In fact, we have a Dan Price painting of Race Rock that s been hanging in our house for the past 10 years My husband is a submariner and passes this lighthouse every time he heads out to sea, and every time he return home It s his favorite of the local lighthouses though I must admit, mine has always been Ledge Lighthas since I was a little girl.I initially saw this book in a gift shop in New London during the New London Food Stroll in September of 2013 I took a photo of it so I wouldn t forget it, and I m glad I did because I did just thatforgot it Clearing out the pics in my phone I came across it and immediately ordered it Such a great read.Whether your familiar with the area or not, this is a wonderful story The characters, the setting, the tension of each stormit s all written in a way that makes you FEEL it You feel like you re weathering the loneliness and tension of that night in 1907 that completely ruined a mans life and forever tarnished years of hard work and dedicated service I actually cried a little when his story ended You feel like you re on top of th...

    I would like to thank Smith Publicity and Netgalley for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review As I looked through other reviews for this book, I wondered if we all read the same story There were lots of raves for Legacy of the Light, but I really can t join them The book was very slow reading for me It was hard for me to get into at the beginning I actually think the book could have been a little tighter, the story told concise over fewer pages.There were moments of brilliance for me The first storm and its aftermath was spell binding I th...

    I enjoyed the writing style and the story I can t think of another author who writes in quite the same manner, I am entertained and informed This would certainly be a good read for someone with an interest in lighthouses, or the area around Groton New London Connecticut.

  5. Naomi says:

    I thought this story was really interesting Not necessarily for the storyline, which I thought was good and kept my interest, but I knew the lighthouses described in this story It was a different book and one I am happy I read for Netgalley.

    Read this book after visiting Ledge Light, which is slowly being restored by the author of the book a former National Geographic photographer and his wife Nice historical mystery, not a bad first novel at all I like books which span than one generation.

  7. Heather says:

    The antagonist in this book was annoying to me and the story was choppy but over all it was a decent read

  8. Linda Callahan says:

    Very fast paced historical novel Can t wait for this month s book club

  9. Michele says:

    I bought this book because we sail in this area, often right past Race Rock This was a good story and well written The ending was a little trite and contrived.
