The Sentinel (English Edition) Kindle版
"The Sentinel melds historical fiction and literary fiction to give readers an emotional and atmospheric visit to the past."
"The author, Jacqueline Hodder, gifts us with the beauty, the isolation, and the sense of duty that pervades the world of the Sentinel. "
"Written like a poem or a prayer, we see the inner world of Miss Devine as she tries to overcome her past and find her purpose."
"There is much beauty and drama in this well-researched historical fiction, and I recommend it to readers."
"A gripping read!"--このテキストは、paperback版に関連付けられています。

Kathleen arrives on the supply ship ready and eager to start teaching these children, it seems a lonely place but beautiful with the sea crashing close by, three different families two with children and there are a few problems getting the children to mix but it doesn’t take long. Adults though may take a bit longer to work out ways to live in harmony together and with the head light keeper Mr. Johannson a stickler for rules there are a few clashes.
One of the Brown daughters, Isabella becomes close to the head light keeper and this surely will shatter what peace there is at The Sentinel, tempers and jealousies flare and with the weather changing as much as the emotions of the people living here, Kathleen struggles at times to work out what to do, one thing she must do is come to terms with her past.
This is a really well written story with lots of emotion flowing on the pages as the author gets into the souls of the people who live there you can feel the loneliness of the place and it would have been very hard living there in the time. The setting is beautiful you can almost hear the ocean and feel the changing emotions of the characters. This a story about learning from your past and moving forward, learning to understand each other on a lonely but beautiful part of the world. It is a story that I highly recommend.
