Description
							Although her mind is still sharp, Elizabeth's eyes have failed. No longer able to linger over her beloved books or gaze at the paintings that move her spirit, she fills the void with music and memories of her family, especially her beloved twin sister, Emily. But when her late father's journals are discovered after an accident, the past suddenly becomes all too present. 

With the help of Morgan, a delinquent teenager performing community service at her senior home, Elizabeth goes through the diaries, a journey through time that brings the two women closer together. Entry by entry, these unlikely friends are drawn deep into a world far removed from their own, and they begin to realize that their fates are connected in ways they never dreamed. While the discovery of Morgan's connection to Elizabeth sheds light onto her own family mysteries, the faded pages of the journals also shake the foundation of everything Elizabeth thinks she knows, bringing secrets of the past into the light.
Reviews

"Morgan Fletcher is performing community service at the senior center, penance for tagging it with graffiti art. She's matched up with Elizabeth Livingstone, an elderly woman whose mind is still sharp, even though her eyesight has failed her. Elizabeth has just been sent some journals belonging to her late father, but she needs Morgan's help to read them. As Elizabeth uncovers details from her past with each page, Morgan becomes more determined to solve the mysteries in her own life." - New York Post, “This Week’s Must-Reads"

"A deeply satisfying look at the meaning of family. With strong characters and rich in historical details, The Lightkeeper's Daughters looks carefully at love and identity and the things we do to keep them both safe." - Booklist

"This is a perfect hammock read for those who love the Bronte sisters and Jodi Picoult in equal measure." - Publishers Weekly
