“The hurts and burdens of the past as well as the cold and unforgiving North Country conspire against the happiness of the beautifully drawn characters in Geye's latest novel. Even on a journey to a new town in a specially crafted boat, Rebekah and Odd cannot escape the past. People are not always what they seem to be in this story, and outcomes cannot be predicted. A compelling read from an author of great skill and versatility.”
— Vicki Erwin, Main Street Books, St.Charles, MO

Staff Reviews

A novel of scandal and ice, Lighthouse Road is an exceptional work.
Peter Geye's second novel is a tale of love, betrayal, hope, and loss.
It runs the gamut of human emotion, immersing the reader into a
complicated relationship between an older woman and a younger man in the
1890s. I guarantee most readers will close the book with a bang and
immediately pick up the phone to call someone to talk about it. Perfect
for book clubs!

The echoes of the characters' heartbreak through the generations are as haunting as the howling of the wolves on the wind." -- Booklist, starred review Against the wilds of sea and wood, a young immigrant woman settles into life outside Duluth in the 1890s, still shocked at finding herself alone in a new country, abandoned and adrift.
