What a great Summer read, I loved this book. The characters are likable, and I find myself wanting to follow their lives beyond this book. I love remote coastal settings with plenty of atmosphere, and The Lighthouse did not disappoint. Besides falling in love with the husband/professor, Jan, I particularly enjoyed learning some of the technical points about the old Fresnel (pronounced Fray-nel) lighthouse lenses and mention of the diaphone fog horn, which gave what might have been just another suspense/mystery novel, an added depth. Jan's obsession with the light, which had an ominous undercurrent, also added to the suspense. The kind of book that stays with you.
