Publisher's Summary

Hitchhiking her way through Alaska, a young woman named Anna is picked up by Kyle, a fisherman. Anna and Kyle quickly fall for each other, as they are both adventurous, fiercely independent, and in love with the raw beauty and solitude of Alaska. To cement their relationship, they agree to become caretakers of a remote lighthouse perched on a small rock in the middle of a deep channel - a place that has been uninhabited since the last caretaker mysteriously disappeared two decades ago. What seems the perfect adventure for these two quickly unravels, as closely-held secrets pull them apart, and the surrounding waters threaten uncertain danger. A psychological thriller set against the rugged landscape of coastal Alaska, Point of Direction is an exquisite literary debut.

Great writing, Rachael!

Rachel, I hope you read your reviews. This is a work of art with deep insight and original description. I am impressed at how turbulent the waters are with violent action, all within the psyche of people fighting their demons the one truly effective method. Patience and acceptance. You packed such profoundly stirring issues into easy read. I think you wrote a classic, Rachel! And your personal history must be rich. Let me know when you finish another. Let's have coffee! - Cindy

What did you love best about Point of Direction?

I enjoyed the setting. Not too many stories are set in the cold desolation of Alaska. The story of surviving on a remote island in such harsh conditions was unique.

What could Rachel Weaver have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

There was one big coincidence in the story that I felt strained credibility. And, the ending seemed rushed.

What three words best describe Kate Hampton’s voice?

Average, nothing special
