Lighthouse keeper's wife

About the Book

The Lighthouse Keeper's Wife is a classic New Zealand story of life on remote Stephens Island, famous for its wild life and stronghold of the pre-historic tuatara. Above all, this is a human story of self-discovery and the lighthouse community, far away from the everyday world.

Jeanette Aplin writes with unusual candour, revealing her struggles to live up to her high ideals, and 'to be a good, true, lighthouse keeper's wife.' Her book is funny, suspenseful, surprising. As she brings alive a way of life now gone forever, she draws even the most home-bound reader into becoming part of the island's rare magic.
