The legend had lived for more than a century, yet, in spite of eye witnesses who had seen her ghost, no one wanted to believe the validity of The Blue Lady. Why was she haunting Brindle Point? What was she trying to say?

After one dockside farewell too many, Josiah Abbotts need for hearth and home suddenly outweigh his taste for salt air and billowing sails. When he is offered the commission of lighthouse keeper at a Virginia lighthouse station; he jumps at the chance and hangs up his captains hat for good. His family is more than willing to follow him to the new lighthouse, but will the ghost of Brindle Point welcome them?

Can obstacles like: unannounced inspections, coastal storms and ghostly apparitions surmount their faith, or, will they ingratiate the Abbotts into a deeper love for the life?

As the passing crew of a line packet ship becomes distracted by a murder on board, they face disaster. Josiahs daughter must put her faith into actions when one of the injured crew members falls in love with her.

When the mending crew is brought before a board of inquiry, previous encounters with this ghost can no longer be kept secret. Only, after the Abbotts decipher messages revealed by the ghost, can they discover truth, the true meaning of love and a true jewel for the keeping.

Paulette M. Withington, a dynamic new writer of historical romance, has created an intriguing novel that magically blends action, and romance with the chilling discoveries of legendary apparitions, newly found treasure and murder. This dazzling tale transports us from Cape Island, New Jersey in her pre-Civil War days; to the lower Chesapeake Bay several decades later, and revolves around the courageous passions of Josiah Abbott and his family as they undertake the life-changing commission of becoming lightkeepers at the Brindle Point, Virginia, lighthouse. This compelling story is laced with wit, old-fashioned values, faith and biblical wisdom. It is also Withington at her best. Paulette was born, and raised in northern Kentucky where her love for writing began. In 1996, she graduated with honors from NRI School of Writing in Washington, DC. She relocated to South Carolina in 1997, and now resides with her husband Jay in historic Charleston; where the romantic grace of the South inspires and enriches her work.
