"A whole new level of storytelling." The historical town of Eagle Harbor awaits readers in the first three books of this bestselling series.
In Love's Unfading Light, a widow who wants nothing to do with love is surprised by a lighthouse keeper's generous spirit. In Love's Every Whisper, a woman looking for contentment in the wrong places finds hope in the arms of a childhood sweetheart. In Love's Sure Dawn, a woman dedicated to helping her family learns love can come from unexpected places. Can these three women find themselves content in the hand of a loving God... and in the arms of the men God leads them to?
From lighthouses and jagged rocks to friendly townsfolk and homemade pie, the Eagle Harbor Series offers a collection of satisfying romance novels laced with God's truths.
Love's Unfading Light
Tressa Danell is finished with men--from the wastrel who left her a widow, to the smelly trapper who keeps proposing, to the banker who wants to repossess her bakery. Lighthouse keeper Mac Oakton is tired of living in a small town that blames him for his father's actions and plans to leave within the month. But the pretty bakery owner and her endless stream of problems keep tugging at his heart. Can Mac set his own plans aside to help? And can Tressa accept his support if that means giving up her independence ... and being obligated to a man again?
Love’s Every Whisper
Victoria Donnelly has finally found a way to redeem herself in the eyes of her family, but it requires returning to the small town of Eagle Harbor, where forgotten feelings for a man she can never have lie buried. Can she face childhood sweetheart Elijah Cummings again without destroying both their hearts?
Love's Sure Dawn
Rebekah Cummings is determined to help pay her family's debts, but she doesn't expect to get a job cooking on the ship of an old friend...or is he an enemy? Rebekah well remembers the pain she endured the last time she tried trusting Gilbert Sinclair. But neither Rebekah nor Gilbert can stop the forgotten feelings swirling between them—or ignore the sacrifices they'd both have to make for a future together.

I think I’ve read all of her books in the apple store except one not in a series, which I plan to next. The way she develops characters is amazing! And man, does she have a lot of character who I love but they each differ from each other. I enjoyed her stories and can’t wait for the rest of the Texas series to come out!
Love this series!
This is a wonderful series that I highly recommend to fans of clean historical romance with an inspirational element. Here are my reviews for the three books:
LOVE'S UNFADING LIGHT
In the setting of the Great Lakes and a lighthouse community is a story of triumph over trials by seeking God's unwavering love during tribulation. There is an overall feeling of tension and despondency as Tressa is struggling just to keep her head above water. I just couldn't see how things were going to work out, but I was rooting for her and Mac the whole time and trusting that a happy ending would come. I enjoyed the few occasions of playful teasing between them which was a surprise and contrasted sharply with the mood of the book. It was difficult to bond with the community since both Mac and Tressa were victims of blatant hostility, gossip and prejudice for the sins of his father and her husband, they each only had one family of friends to turn to. I'm looking forward to reading the newly released second book in the series since this first book introduces the main characters that follow. I would recommend Love's Unfading Light to fans of Jody Hedlund's Beacons of Hope series.
LOVE'S EVERY WHISPER
This is one of those rare occasions where I loved the second book in a series more than the first! What stood out to me the most was how much action was depicted with the scenes of Elijah and his crew rescuing sailors and passengers from boats that hit rocks or sandbars during frigid storms on Lake Superior. I loved Elijah's passion for saving lives that otherwise would have been needlessly lost. His love for Victoria seems hopeless, but they continue to encounter each other and their restrained affection creates a palpable romantic tension. Every character in the story is flawed (some more than others) but all came to life because of their determination through the struggles each faced. I was sad for the emotional abuse Victoria endures from her family and Gilbert and how each attempt at expressing herself was met with contempt and manipulation. Thankfully she forms an unlikely bond with Elijah's defiant sister Rebekah and through her example learns of the true source of strength and confidence- relying on the Lord. Elijah and Victoria each focus on certain scripture verses for help as they struggle to follow their hearts amid pressure and conflict from family and the community.
LOVE'S SURE DAWN
We get to know Rebekah and Gilbert in the previous books in the Eagle Harbor series, and they are both difficult characters. I couldn't wait to see how their story would be told. After some humbling experiences in the previous book, Gilbert is forced to reevaluate his strategy on accomplishing his goal of building the crane he engineered. From an outside perspective, he seems selfishly bent on making this business venture successful at all costs, but as we learn about his real motivations his true character is revealed.
Rebekah is a strong young woman, stubborn and desperate to prove to her family that she can contribute beyond what the norm is for women of the time. Even though she acts hardened and tough, she is still naive about many things. Her eyes are opened to more harshness and cruelty on her journey, yet her compassion makes a difference in the lives of those she reaches out to.
The overall mood of the book is anxious since there is so much injustice in the lives of the characters, but the fighting spirits of Gilbert and Rebekah propel the story forward. The attraction between them is something they also fight against, but as they learn to turn to the Lord to direct their paths, they find that they are being led toward each other instead of apart. I was happy to see how things came together in the end, and already can't wait to read the next book!
