Book Review: Out of the Storm

Having grown up in a lighthouse, loneliness is all Isabelle Thornton has ever known--and all, she assumes, she ever will know. But when her lightkeeper father rescues a young man from the lake, her sheltered world is turned upside down.

Bestselling author Jody Hedlund's Out of the Storm is her first ever novella and introduces readers to Beacons of Hope, a new series set in the 1800s amid the romance, history, and danger surrounding the Great Lakes lighthouses of Michigan.





===================
Lighthouses? Michigan? How could this Michigan girl resist the chance to review this novella? I couldn't and while not a top 10 book for this year, it really whet my appetite for this series of books. I easily read this in one sitting and got lost in the imagery. Having grown up and lived most of my life in the Great Lakes State, I know just how bitter the weather can be and how choppy the lakes are in bad weather. Knowing that drew me right into the stories and imagining life so many years ago kept me reading right up until the last page. As a standalone piece, it's okay, but as an introduction to this new series, it's great!
