This Christian work of historical fiction set in the Great Lakes brings to life the story of Lainey, a young girl who stays with her aunt and uncle, who are lighthouse keepers, while her parents take a trip. Lainey enjoys helping her uncle with his lighthouse duties, but finds her aunt’s abrasive orders hard to deal with sometimes.

Following Lainey’s life through the losses, friendship, trials, and triumphs. This book takes some twists and turns that helped bring the story to life. I love Lainey’s faith, grace, and strength to deal with what God allows her to go through. This Young Adult novel also presents the perfect story for adults as well. So check out this book for yourself.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but it in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

About the Author

After teaching 5th Grade at Gibraltar School for 22 years, Judy followed the calling that tugged at her all her life to write. Lainey of the Door Islands is her 7th published book and she is the recipient of numerous awards. She also writes for Guideposts Magazine. If you visit Door County, you may find her hiking in the woods, jet skiing on the bay, worshipping at her church, teaching a Bible study, cheering for the Green Bay Packers, playing with her amazing grandson, or sitting outside enjoying the beauty around her.

More from Judy

Door County, where I live, is the destination of 3 million people in the summer and fall. Lainey of the Door Islands, my seventh published book, is the culmination of my desire to write a book about this wonderful area where I live. Tourists and residents alike love all things Door County, past and present. One day as I traveled on the ferry between Washington Island and the mainland of Door County and gazed out at tiny Pilot Island, I said again to myself, ‘I need to write a book about Door County’. I don’t recall if it was that day, the next, or two days later, but the story dropped into my spirit. I sat down at my computer and wrote well into the second chapter in one sitting. I said to my husband, “I’m writing and I can’t stop.”
