The Lightkeeper's Daughter by Colleen Coble

The Lightkeeper's Daughter by Colleen Coble is a historical novel set in California in 1907. Addie Sullivan's life changes one day when an unknown man shows up and tells Addie that she is really someone else. She has spent her life living in a lighthouse and learning how to help take care of it. Her life is changed drastically when she goes to this new home and meets the people that live there.

When I started the story I had difficulty keeping the different characters straight. The characters were a bit unbelievable in some respects, but the strength of the book was the unexpected twists and turns that made the story suspenseful. This book would probably be classified under mystery and romance, though Coble did better on the mystery end than on the romance end. It is another book that is a good reminder that keeping secrets can really affect a person's life. If you like historical fiction and mysteries, this would be a good book for you to read.
