In My Opinion
The conclusion to Suzanne Woods Fisher’s Three Sisters Island series is supposed to be all about Blaine.
And it is, in a way. The reader sees how much Blaine has grown into her career, yet she still feels unheard in her family. There is definitely some growth in Blaine throughout the course of the book when it comes to relationships with her family.
However, the relationship between Blaine and her best friend Artie left a lot to be desired. For most of the book, Artie is simply a medical professional forced to help Blaine’s French friend. When the two finally do talk to each other about what happened a couple years before, it is rushed. In fact, there was more romance between Blaine’s older sisters and their husbands (who got their time in the sun in the previous books) than there is between Artie and Blaine.
That said, it was delightful to return to this Maine island and reunite with some of the memorable characters and the challenges of living remotely. This is also a series you will get much more out of reading in order as the layers of each character build from book to book.

10 Curious Facts about Lighthouses
People love lighthouses. There’s just something special about those sturdy sentinels with their beacons of light, patiently sweeping the water, their mournful and haunting wail of a foghorn. Longfollow’s poem, The Lighthouse, written in 1850, captured the allure so well:
And as the evening darkens, lo! how bright,
Through the deep purple of the twilight air,
Beams forth the sudden radiance of its light,
With strange, unearthly splendor in the glare!
“Unearthly splendor.” Wow, doesn’t that hit the nail on the head? A lighthouse, to me, represents a spiritual truth: Someone’s watching out for us, looking out for the dangers ahead, and always glad to welcome us home.
Here are 10 facts about lighthouses that you might not know:
- THE FIRST KNOWN LIGHTHOUSE was Egypt’s Pharos of Alexandria, Egypt, built in the third century B.C. The lighthouse was made from a fire on a platform to warn sailors of the port’s entrance. This lighthouse was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
- THE OLDEST EXISTING LIGHTHOUSE IN THE WORLD is considered to be La Coruna in Spain that dates from ca. 20 B.C. A Roman lighthouse is located on the Cliffs of Dover in the UK that was constructed in 40 A.D.
- THE UNITED STATES IS HOME to more lighthouses than any other country.
- THE FIRST LIGHTHOUSE IN AMERICA was at Boston on Little Brewster Island (1716). The first keeper was George Worthylake who, sadly, was drowned, along with his wife and daughter, when returning to the island in 1718.
- THE TALLEST LIGHTHOUSE is on Cape Hatteras, NC. Built in 1872, it reached 196 feet tall.
- THE FIRST WEST COAST LIGHTHOUSE was built on Alcatraz Island in 1854.
- DAYMARKS are the painted colors and patterns (diamonds, spirals and stripes) on lighthouse towers to distinguish them from each other.
- LIGHTHOUSE KEEPING was one of the first U.S. government jobs available to women, as far back as the 19th century. Most obtained their position when their husband died or became incapacitated.
- THE RANGE OF THE LIGHTHOUSE LIGHT produces a light seen 25 miles at sea.
- ABOUT 700 LIGHTHOUSES are still in active use in the United States.
As I wrote the third book in the ‘Three Sisters island’ series, I just had to give that little charred lighthouse its day in the sun. It had patiently played a role in the first two books, waiting for its turn on center stage. Not only did its setting provide a very unexpected “WHAT? How did that happen?” conclusion to the series, it even stole the headline! The undisputed title: At Lighthouse Point.
