The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter by Hazel Gaynor is a journey into the past . . . and then again, further into the past.
“an amazing historical novel, revealing the horrors of WWI through the letters exchanged by Tom and Evie.”
In 1917 while in the throes of the First World War, nine-year-old Frances Griffiths left her home in Cape Town, Africa, with her mother to stay with her aunt in Cottingley, England.
“This is a story that is rich in human drama, with a tinge of predictability; however, the clever use of parallels will intrigue the reader long after finishing the novel.”
“Given the awards she has already received, we are sure to hear much more from Hazel Gaynor—and that is a good thing.”
