Welcome to my blog. Today I have a review for you. Haven't been reading as much as usual lately. Spending my time writing, hoping to finish soon. Here's the latest novel you might enjoy.





THE LIGHTHOUSE BETWEEN THE WORLDS

By Melanie Crowder

Lighthouses fascinate me. They’re so mysterious. Though I’ve never seen a real one, pictures of them hint at secrets that only the lighthouse knows. Author Melanie Crowder’s novel THE LIGHTHOUSE BETWEEN THE WORLDS, is a perfect example of a lighthouse that is more than just a warning for ships to not come near the land. This lighthouse is the story of a family, a mother who is dead, or so they believe, a father who disappears, and a boy who must find the answers to his father’s whereabouts and his mother’s death.

Melanie Crowder has written a touching story about a family torn apart and a lighthouse that is much more than a lighthouse. As I read, the story pulled me deeper and deeper into young Griffin’s life as he finds himself in another world. This novel kept me reading to discover the answers to Griffin's questions. You may be surprised at what he finds. I was. And that makes for a fascinating story.

THE LIGHTHOUSE BETWEEN THE WORLDS would make a nice addition to school libraries, public libraries, and your own library. Enjoy.

Also, Happy Presidents' Day

    1. LOL! I wasn't thinking about South Dakota though, Karin. Have always thought that mountain with the faces was neat.
