Edinburgh, 1814 Sarah Stevenson has embarrassed her family by becoming pregnant by her true love, Thomas Crichton. She is being banished to Cape Wrath lighthouse its located in the remote part of northwest Scotland. She reluctantly befriends William Campbell the lighthouse keeper with memories of his own past. While awaiting the birth and hopefully the return of Thomas, she finds out her parents are planning on taking her child away from her and placing it up for adoption. She has to find a way to prevent this from taking place.


A mysterious package arrives from an Alexander Seawell with information about a gift Sarah had given to Thomas. She has no idea who Alexander is or how he has the gift. But as they correspond with each other Sarah starts having feelings for Alexander, but she also warms up to William. She certainly has a big decision she will have to make, will she make the right one. Will the baby's father come back to her or is he lost forever?


I enjoyed the mystery and the description of the lighthouse but struggled with Sarah and her situations. She tended to force herself into other peoples problems instead of handling her own. She started out as a strong willed woman, but soon became somewhat of a whiner. It is worthwhile to those who enjoy historical settings in Scotland.
