A Light in the Darkness


Priscilla Latham Grant has inherited a lighthouse! So with not much more than a strong will and a sore heart, the recent widow says goodbye to her lifelong Kansas home and heads to the quaint and historic island of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. There she comes face-to-face with adventures, which include her trusty canine friend, Jake, three delightful cousins she didn’t know she had, and Gerald O’Bannon, a handsome Coast Guard captain – plus head-scratching mysteries that crop up with surprising regularity.

Mysteries of Martha’s Vineyard, book 1.

Priscilla arrives at her new lighthouse, a little overwhelmed by what she’s taken on.  She meets Gerald O’Bannon, local Coast Guard captain, who tells her that thanks to a newspaper article, everyone has a revived passion for finding a British treasure stolen during the Revolution and hidden somewhere on the island.   She discovers an old chest full of logbooks written by the lighthouse keepers over the years.  As she’s trying to read the entries in one of the oldest books, a gold coin falls out.  It’s British and dated 1775.  Did she just find a piece of the missing treasure?  The search for answers is on and could have far-reaching consequences.
