Readers Await This Dramatic Conclusion
to the Beacons of Hope Series

Tessa Taylor arrives in 1870s Upper Peninsula, Michigan, planning to serve as a new teacher to the town. Much to her dismay, however, she immediately learns that there was a mistake, that the town had requested a male teacher. Percival Updegraff, superintendent and chief mine clerk, says she can stay through winter since they won't be able to locate a new teacher before then, and Tessa can't help but say she is in his debt. Little does she know that Percival will indeed keep track of all that she owes him.

Determined to become indispensable, Tessa throws herself into teaching, and soon the children of the widowed lighthouse keeper have decided she's the right match for their grieving father. Their uncle and assistant light keeper, Alex Bjorklund, has his own feelings for Tessa. As the two brothers begin competing for her hand, Tessa increasingly feels that someone is tracking her every move, and she may not be able to escape the trap that has been laid for her.

This was the BEST out of the Beacons of hope series by Jody Hedlund. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Along with the heroine, I quickly fell for the most charming of the leading men. Charming, handsome, witty, self sacrificing..sigh* a true storybook!!

I'll be honest though sometimes the heroine annoyed me with her over eagerness to do 'everything' and be the perfect mother bear. I'll conclude that this was written for character development ( a young woman pursuing her passion and for her to make peace with her past. Overall, well done.

I really love this book! One of my favorite. Tessa has to go through a lot in this novel and I like how she doesn't give up no matter how difficult things get.
