With the lies of the past behind her, Addie finds love . . . and discovers her true Father.

Addie Sullivan leads a quiet life in a northern California lighthouse. She mourns the death of her father and endures her mother's bitterness, until the night a storm brings an injured stranger and a dark secret to her home. The man insists she is not who she thinks she is, but rather "Julia Eaton"--the child long lost and feared dead by her wealthy family. Seizing the chance to be reunited with the
Eatons, Addie leaves her lighthouse home but decides to keep her true identity a secret until they can unravel the mystery.

Addie loves the Eatons' palatial home tucked away among the California redwood forests. She feels secure with the jovial family, adores the young boy who is her charge as governess, and finds romance with his father John, a young widower. But sinister shadows overtake Addie's joy. As dusty rooms and secret compartments give up their clues about her past, Addie finds a faith and a love she could never have guessed. To embrace this new world of promise is to risk her life; but to run away is to risk losing the greatest love she's ever known.

This is my first book by CC and I must say that I agree with others when they say that CC knows how to keep you reading. Because if it wasn't for the mystery in this book, this book would have been a complete failure. The suspense was the only thing that kept me hanging on for dear life, everything else was from the dialouge, the setting and the characters lacked depth.. and then there was that ROMANCE..made me want to retch, it was unforgettably trite, overly sappy, and unconvincing. I cried out for Mercy from the torture of reading at many points during this book and was only encouraged to read on to find out 'what happened' but Oh the agony I endured!! But because i was persuaded to read it to the end, i gave it this rating. I must say I done knew who the villian was from early in the book. I guess that knowledge comes with experience...i'll take a bow now :)

I absolutely loved the book! It was thrilling at the end and I couldn't stop reading. Colleen Coble knows how to take the attention of the readers from the first page..

Colleen Coble is an excellent story telling. She keeps your interest throughout the entire story. It is best to read this story first before the other novels in the Mercy Falls series. Enjoy

Great book! The suspense started on page 3 and didnt let up until the very end. I never saw any of it coming! Highly recommend!

Absolutely Amazing!!! Never guessed who the villain was until one chapter before!(for me that's really good because I'm good at guessing) The whole entire book is filled with romance, secrets, and complicated characters! It's hard to find a mystery/romance book that starts off at a fast pace.... this is it! Wonderful for anyone who is in for a ride!

This is light reading, takes a little while to get into the story which makes it a little different than the first 2 but enjoyed the outcome tramendously

The twist towards the end of the story places this book well above average. Good job!
