Her family's lighthouse home is an island of enchantment for 13-year-old Eliza Wells. Surrounded by whales, seals, and pelicans, she avoids the problems that beset the mainland: like the increasingly heated conflict between the local town's white and Chinese citizens.
This compelling historical novel by the award-winning author of Shadow Spinner is based on actual 19th century events. Narrator Christina Moore voices all the confusion, compassion, and strength of a heroine willing to risk what she loves most in order to do what she knows is right.
