Freedom's Light by Colleen Coble

Book Description:  Hannah Thomas believes she’s escaped Galen Wright’s evil intentions by marrying an older lighthouse keeper. Seemingly safe in faraway Massachusetts, her world is upended when John is killed in one of the first battles of the Revolutionary War. Hannah is allowed to continue the difficult task of tending the twin lighthouses in John’s place, though she faces daily disapproval from John’s family. She thinks her loneliness will subside when her younger sister arrives, but she finds Lydia’s obsession with Galen only escalates the dangerous tides swirling around her.
A stormy night brings a shipwrecked sea captain to Hannah’s door, and though he is a Tory, her heart is as traitorous as the dark-eyed captain. Even though she discovers Birch Meredith isn’t the enemy he seemed at first, Hannah isn’t sure their love will ever see the light of freedom.

My Thoughts: Historical romance is not my go to read but in this case because Colleen Coble wrote this story and because I am interested in the lighthouse I picked up this novel.  And because I read that Mrs. Coble had this script on her desk for years because she thought it wasn't a good book. 
Hannah Thomas married John to escape Galen's evil clutches.  Hannah feels that she will be safe tending to the lighthouse but then John dies in one of the first battles of the Revolutionary War Hannah wonders if she can mange the town lighthouses on her own.
But then her younger sister arrives and Hannah feels that he loneliness may subside....only her sister seems enthralled with Galen.  
Then one dark stormy night a shipwreck takes place near the lighthouse.
Is this ship wreck a godsend?  
This is quite a read!  So glad Mrs. Coble dusted of the manuscript and printed this story.
Some mystery, a little romance and a bit of history in this novel, Freedom's Light.
