5 Special Places in Literature: Enlightening Lighthouses

Updated: Mar 19, 2021

Every time you visit a lighthouse, whether in person or online during these times, there are a wealth of stories to discover. And when you open the pages of a book with a lighthouse theme, you'll find the beautiful sentinels of the sea acting as another character in the book.

Here is a sampling of five of my own favorite tales featuring lighthouses:


Anne's House of Dreams by L. M. Montgomery

Readers of my past blogs know I often think of L. M. Montgomery when making a list of my favorite books. This time is no exception!

She has written one of the most moving accounts of a lighthouse keeper in a novel. It seems to me as if Captain Jim comes alive on the pages of Anne's House of Dreams. It is one of the author's most deeply-felt books, I think, with a somewhat wistful and sad air about it.
