Isabelle Thornton, the almost 20-year-old daughter of a Michigan lighthouse keeper, has led a geographically sheltered life. Seemingly educated and self-reliant, obedient Isabelle finds her world changing when a young man washes ashore and needs the help of Isabelle and her father to recover. The newcomer, Henry, comes from a privileged background. I think there is more to his story than can come out in the novella. He makes a rather quick change of behavior as he falls in love with Isabelle. I like Isabelle’s character, though I’m waiting to see if Henry still acts on rogue tendencies.
