The Light on the Island
Tales of A Lighthouse Keeper's Family in the San Juan IslandsBook - 2001
Readers can once again enjoy Helene Glidden's classic The Light on the Island, as this 50th Anniversary Edition retells the touching story of a young girl growing up on Patos Island in the San Archipelago of Washington State. Her parents raised thirteen children while her father served as the Patos Island lighthouse keeper from 1905 - 1913. Helene reminisces about the adventure and heartbreak experienced on a beautiful but remote island where smugglers, old timers, and God weave in and out of their lives.
