Jeanette Aplin's THE LIGHTHOUSE CHILDREN'S MOTHER was the long-awaited sequel to her popular story of life on Stephens Island .
Here the author takes readers into a world now gone forever, the isolated life on a remote lighthouse this time in the far south, Dog Island in Foveaux Strait . Many things are much the same in families everywhere, but the extra challenges of lighthouse life will set parents thinking - how would we ourselves have coped?
It's an engrossing read. Jeanette Aplin writes with charm and disarming honesty about island relationships, bringing her perceptive eye to what is truly different in her unusual circumstances.
