At the elegant Mercy Falls masquerade ball, Olivia's hidden identity will be revealed.
It is the dawn of a new century and Olivia Stewart is heiress to an empire. Her family numbers among the Four Hundred—those considered the wealthiest and most distinquished in America. Unfortunately their wealth has nearly disappeared, and now their security rests upon the Stewart daughters' marrying well.
Olivia's sister, Eleanor, was engaged to Harrison Bennett, one of the nation's wealthiest men, but has since died. Now the pressure is on Olivia to take her place, despite her suspicions about Eleanor's fiancé. Using her family's long-forgotten English title, Olivia travels to Mercy Falls, California, as Lady Devonworth, hoping to learn more before committing to marriage. There she finds that Eleanor's death was no accident. And Harrison is not the man she thought he would be.
When Mercy Falls holds a charity masquerade ball to raise funds for the new lighthouse, secrets—and truths long hidden—will be revealed. But can Harrison really love Olivia when he finds her true identity? Can she live with the repercussions of failing her family, or will she finally realize that nothing—not money, family, or romance—will ever compare to God's unconditional love?
Olivia Stewart is a headstrong young woman who has traveled to California to find out what has happened to her sister Elanor. What she finds when she arrives is much more than she bargained for.
The Lightkeepers Ball is a fantastic story. It is filed with vivid descriptions, endearing and dastardly characters, deception and intrigue and more twists and turns than one would ever anticipate.
My favorite character of the story is actually the fiancée Harrison. This poor man gets ito more trouble, without deserving it, than anyone should, and he keeps his composure and dignity well.
The Lightkeepers Ball is a great read. Definitely a book You Need To Read.
