    1. This book just didn't work for me. It lacked depth and quality of writing. Also, there was too much mixing of historical language with modern-day expressions. It gets two stars because I made it to the end.

    2. Inside book jacket summary calls this "in the tradition of L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables. This is not quite as wholesome, but equally entertaining.

    3. I am currently reading this book for a book report, so far so good D.N.V The first thing we know about Eliza is that she is lonely, she sends a bottle out and she asks for a friend. Eliza Brown lost her brother, the one person she loved the most in her life. She moved with her sister and her husband, who just happens to be a pastor of their church. She is being courted by Charles Boxly,and her close friend reveals that he has feelings for her. And she has been asked to take over the fourth grade [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this book even though I picked it up on a whim while rummage "saleing" with my parents. This is the story of a stubborn young girl stuck living with her family at stepping stone lighthouse on the Long island/city island/New York coast. Someone who is very dear to her dies and she is heartbroken, but things start to turn around almost too fast for her. She has various people whom are intersested in her hand and she has trouble deciding whom or what is right. Around that time she [...]

    5. Eliza is growing up in a lighthouse, and finds life stifling. Moving to her sister's house offers more choices, but still she is unsure and discontented, wondering if she should "settle" for good enough. This was a quick read and pretty good. It does offer a nice peek at the time period (1903) and the setting (New York).

    6. This was an okay book. I had a slow plot at times, and at others it would randomly speed up in time. For a romance, it was good, but for an overall book, it sucked.Go ahead. Abandon this book.

    7. An EXCELLENT read! Makes you really want to live in a light house, at least it made me want to live in a light house.
