How could I have expected so much? How could I have given her so little in return?"

Six long years ago, Captain Reynolds Macy sailed away from his bride, looking forward to the day when he would return to Nantucket Island with a ship's hold full of whale oil. But when that momentous day finally arrives, Ren soon discovers that everything has changed in his absence. Everything.

Unlike most islanders, bold and spirited Daphne Coffin doesn't defer to Ren as an authoritative whalemaster, but sees through his aloofness to the aching heart beneath. She encourages him to return to his Quaker roots and "mind the Light," finding solace in God and community. As Ren becomes the man she believes him to be--honorable, wise, faithful--she finds herself falling in love with him.

But how can she, when her heart is spoken for?

I love curling up with a Suzanne Woods Fisher book for I know I will be immersed in a story that will delight as well as challenge and inspire me. Minding the Light is just such a novel, and I was swept away to nineteenth-century Nantucket Island and the fledgling Quaker whaling community introduced in Phoebe's Light. Once again, Fisher creates a multi-layered story filled with authentic tragedies and triumphs that befall the coastal community. Complex, relatable characters remind the reader that although centuries pass, people do not change so very much, and the need to "mind the Light" is as relevant today as it was then. I'm already eager for the third book in this series, The Light Before Day, coming in October. Don't miss this stirring novel and series.
