Sunday Spotlight: A Light in Bailey's Harbor

I decided start something last week. I am taking a book that I have read and loved that has less than 100 reviews on Goodreads and giving it some love! I hope to spotlight a new book each week.

Title: A Light in Bailey's Harbor

Author: Bethany Baker

Genre: Christian Fiction, Historical Fiction,

5 ratings and 3 reviews 

My review:

This book came out in 2015 and it is another one that I read in 2020. I felt like it was well-written and engaging. It kept me captivated until the very end. I did not love the ending and felt like there should have been more to it. Overall, it was an enjoyable read and also made my list of favorites for 2020. Free on Kindle Unlimited


 Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Katy Kippling has an abundance of personality, or so she was told by a recent male acquaintance. Trying to conform to the etiquette of an 1880's lady is difficult enough, without adding the challenges of having an abundance of personality. Katy loves the Cana Island Lighthouse, serving her small lakeside town in Bailey's Harbor, Wisconsin. In the summer of 1880, the new lighthouse keeper arrives. While Katy imagines his stately captain's beard and noble brow, Blake Strawberry, the new keeper, is quite the opposite. Blake is a young man searching for something to heal the pain and heartaches of his past. By moving west and accepting this new position, he plans to forget all of his painful memories and disappointments. What he hasn't counted on is that the Lord's voice can be heard just as clearly in Wisconsin as in Massachusetts. Throughout the story, another character, Horatio Spafford and his beloved hymn, "It Is Well With My Soul," play integral roles in the characters' lives. Will Blake surrender to the message of this song and allow it to change his life, as it has changed the lives of those he loves? Will Katy move beyond her tangible child-like faith, and trust that her Heavenly Father can truly make her soul well, even when she doesn't understand His ways? And will Blake and Katy relinquish the control they have on their own lives, allowing the Lord to work in His time and in His perfect way-understanding that His ways are not always our ways.

  1. I never would find a book like this without you highlighting it.

  2. This is a fun idea! Let's give those books some love.

    An abundance of personality.... I rather see that as a compliment! Sounds like a lovely read.
