Thank you for helping me decide what book from my TBR collection I should read next:
My TBR List is a meme hosted by the awesome Michelle at Because Reading. It’s a fun way to choose a book from your TBR pile to read. The 1st Saturday of every month, I will list 3 books I am considering reading and take a poll as to which you think I should read. I will read the winner that month, and my review will follow (unfortunately, not likely in the same month, but eventually--that's all I can promise).
I hope you all had a good week. Bad news seemed to come the way of many of my friends this past week, and my heart goes out to them. Whether you lost a loved one, are struggling with an illness, are having financial difficulty, or just are not feeling good, know that I am thinking of you and sending you hugs.
Thank you to everyone who voted in my November TBR List Poll! I had to call in a tie breaker because it was a three way tie there in the end! As much as I would love to read all three books this month, I have a feeling that will not be possible.
The two finalists earned 6 votes (I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon and Heresy by Melissa Lenhardt) each and the winner, Hazel Gaynor's The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter took the poll with 7 votes.
“They call me a heroine, but I am not deserving of such accolades. I am just an ordinary young woman who did her duty.
1838: Northumberland, England. Longstone Lighthouse on the Farne Islands has been Grace Darling’s home for all of her twenty-two years. When she and her father rescue shipwreck survivors in a furious storm, Grace becomes celebrated throughout England, the subject of poems, ballads, and plays. But far more precious than her unsought fame is the friendship that develops between Grace and a visiting artist. Just as George Emmerson captures Grace with his brushes, she in turn captures his heart.
1938: Newport, Rhode Island. Nineteen-years-old and pregnant, Matilda Emmerson has been sent away from Ireland in disgrace. She is to stay with Harriet, a reclusive relative and assistant lighthouse keeper, until her baby is born. A discarded, half-finished portrait opens a window into Matilda’s family history. As a deadly hurricane approaches, two women, living a century apart, will be linked forever by their instinctive acts of courage and love. [Goodreads Summary]
