A TERRIFYING MYSTERY OF THE SEA... In December 1900, three lighthouse keepers vanished without trace from the remote Scottish island of Eilean Mor. An emergency relief crew was sent to man the lighthouse. At the end of their month-long duty, they resigned from their posts and never spoke of what they had experienced on the island. The mystery of Eilean Mor has never been solved. Until now. In the present, a group of environmental researchers arrives on the island to observe the wildlife. While exploring the lighthouse, now automated and deserted, one of the team discovers a manuscript written by one of the relief keepers, a man named Alec Dalemore. As a sudden storm moves in, cutting off their escape, the researchers come to realise that Dalemore wrote the manuscript as a warning to all the lighthouse keepers who would come after him. A warning of something on Eilean Mor and in the surrounding ocean - something ancient and powerful, and strange beyond imagining...

From The New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Came Home comes a historical novel inspired by true events, and the extraordinary female lighthouse keepers of the past two hundred years. “They call me a heroine, but I am not deserving of such accolades.

The Lighthouse Keeper’s Son shares a chronological collection of several short stories recalling author Dallas E. Quidley Jr.’s life as the son of a lighthouse keeper. With modern marine safety technology, the lighthouse way of life has slipped away, even though many lighthouses still stand and are open to the public. Recalling his personal experiences, Quidley reveals various aspects of life as a lighthouse keeper. The US Lighthouse Service and the US Coast Guard have historically been foremost in safe marine navigation. The keepers were highly qualified and dedicated mariners—people who were truly the salt of the earth. In Quidley’s family, three generations plus one son tried to live up to that reputation. This collection of personal narratives offers exciting stories of Quidley’s life before and after his time in the lighthouses with his family. Through these stories of events and people, a portrait of a strong, hardworking, Christian and family man emerges. The Lighthouse Keeper’s Son chronicles a life well-lived and the cherished memories of a man who has experienced his life to the fullest.
