The Light Before Day
After three years on a whaling voyage, Henry Macy returns to Nantucket to news that his grandmother has passed, bequeathing her vast fortune to him and his sister, Hitty. And it was truly vast. But Lillian Coffin was no fool. The inheritance comes with a steep cost, including when they should marry and whom--a Quaker in good standing, of course. But if they relinquish the inheritance, it all goes to Tristram Macy, their father's thieving business partner.
As Hitty and Henry seek a way to satisfy the will's conditions, they'll be faced with obstacles on every side--and it may be that Lillian Coffin will have the last word after all.
Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher surprises and delights with this story of hope and renewal, love and redemption, arriving just when most needed.
My thoughts: While I have read and enjoyed many of Suzanne's books, I do believe this series may be my favorite! I love that she worked so hard to preserve the history of Nantucket in the stories, and brought much of it to life for me! I found Henry and Hitty's story to be a fascinating one that show cased the islands forward thinking in the 1840's with integrating schools. I highly recommend picking this series up! It made me want to visit Nantucket for myself.
I received this book from the publisher. This is my honest review.
