Beacon of Love

by
Older and wiser, it should have been easy to go home...

Twenty-five years ago Stephanie left beautiful Eugene, Oregon, and her beautiful best friend behind. She also left behind her parents' bitter warfare and the truth that her feelings for Paula weren't about friendship. Meeting again after all these years, Stephanie is more certain that ever that she will always love Paula.

As Paula copes with the loss of her mother, family secrets and bigotry unravel around her, leaving Stephanie the one guiding light in her life. Finally, she can see where their undeniable closeness could lead. But when she reaches out, Stephanie's family pulls her away, leaving them both far from any safe shore.

Ann Roberts's (Root of Passion, Beach Town) romantic story set under the guiding light of America's most famous lighthouse follows two women and their search for home.

Pam Bigelow - January 2011: This is a well written book about love, loss, redemption, and parenthood. Roberts intertwines her characters like a helix and slowly unveils the truth about each one... This is one of those books that sneaks up on the reader. There aren't a lot of bells and whistles, it doesn't shout at you, nor does it hit you over the head. It is, however, well-written and in a quiet way, the characters and their story will stay with you long after you finish the book and put it aside.

Just About Write

November 2010: Twists and turns, unexpected and scandalous revelations make for stirring reading. In addition to the women's strained relationship, Stephanie must also figure out what message the ghost in the Heceta lighthouse is trying to give her -- if only she believed she exists.

October 2010: Paula and Stephanie were inseparable growing up. They parted after their senior year, and now, fate has brought them both back to Eugene, Oregon... Roberts...looks at the lies each woman has told herself... This engrossing story is set in the beautiful North West, and is told under the light from the lovely Heceta Lighthouse. It's a good story that might have you packing your bags for a trip to Oregon.
