1854. Heglin, Suzan K., Paula The Lighthouse Years. 2005

1854. Heglin, Suzan K., Paula The Lighthouse Years. 2005. 338p. Soft wraps. Paula The Lighthouse Years based on a true story. If you were a woman in the 1930’s living in a developing, war torn country, your family and friends, your history and culture, limited what you could be. But only your own level of personal courage limited who you were or how far you could go. Paula, the Lighthouse Years, is the true story of Paula, the Estonian mail order bride of an Alaskan Lighthouse keeper. Despite his abuse and near madness, they keep lights along the rugged Alaskan coast in the 1930’s, encountering families, foreigners, fools and phantoms. It’s the story of one woman’s life, but it is also history, adventure, technology, and culture. Paula does not dare hope for love, but love finds Paula in this touching, thrilling, true journey through one woman’s life. The lights that she and her husband were stationed at include Point Retreat, Guard Island, and Tree Point. (M). $29.
