  1. This is a gorgeously written and thoughtful book and I wish it were many hundreds of pages longer so that I could keep enjoying it Caroline Woodward is a mature, interesting, humble, well traveled writer who makes the life changing decision with her husband to live on the wild and remote islands of BC Each chapter is a new window into her life and the lives of lightkeepers and their struggles and pleasures Woodward is intelligent and often very funny in the way she presents things in these pages [...]


  2. After a brief stay years ago at Porlier Pass lighthouse with lighthouse keepers Lorne and Dorothy Gibson who had become friends with my boater parents while stationed at the Lamb Island lighthouse in Lake Superior , I ve had an interest in life caring for the lights So I was delighted to read Caroline Woodward s memoir of a modern lighthouse keeper.Not only does she immerse the reader in the day by day, season by season role and responsibilities of lighthouse keepers, she also invites you along [...]

  6. Interesting meditation on the author s life This book is not a straightforward accounting of a lightkeeper s life, it is of an inner look at the author s desire to write and her path towards the lighthouse I enjoyed the description of the ocean, the lighthouse stations, the many jobs involved in keeping a station going Her recounting of history and the natural world along the coast was very interesting.



  7.
