An unlikely visitor brings light to the life of the lighthouse keeper’s daughter in a stunning new adventure from the award-winning author of the Cogheart series. A short novel for reluctant readers published by Barrington Stoke.
When the lighthouse no longer shines, what else has the power to guide you to shore?
Deryn’s father is the lighthouse keeper on Featherstone Island, keeping the lantern lit to protect passing boats from the treacherous rocky coastline. But when an emergency arises and her parents have to travel to the mainland for help, Deryn is left alone to keep watch over the lighthouse, and she finds herself in a terrible situation when the lamp runs out of oil during a wild storm. With a fishing boat in peril on the sea, and time running out to rescue those on board, Deryn seeks help from an unusual source. Will she be able to keep the lantern lit through the dark, dangerous night?
