"Legacy of the Light" is a historical thriller about two generations of lighthouse keepers at Race Rock Lighthouse off the shore of New London, Connecticut. "Legacy" is a story of how the past influences the present, of fathers and sons, failure, guilt, love, and redemption. The story begins in 1907 and continues in 1938, when the hurricane of the century bears down on this man-made island in the middle of the sea. Those trapped at Race Rock - the keeper, his fiancée, and a mysterious stranger - must fight the forces of nature and the demons within that threaten to destroy them. "Legacy of the Light" draws readers into a fastpaced story full of twists and turns.
