A shipwreck leaves one survivor who cannot remember anything and the lighthouse keeper, Cal, rescues her. The young lady takes the name of the ship, Mallory.
The setting near Mackinac Island is a favorite since I once visited there. Lighthouses are very interesting to me and the descriptions brought me right into the story.
I liked the characters of Mallory, Cal and his daughter Lily. It was great to see Mallory interact with the little girl. Mallory knows almost nothing about her previous life, although she loves to draw and paint. But she does not know if she is married or has a family.
The romance was sweet but necessarily moved at a slow pace. The feeling of uncertainty was expressed very well, especially when someone from her past shows up. Mallory is confused but soon memories return.
This was a sweet, clean story with a solid faith thread that portrayed an honorable and Godly hero.

The lone survivor of a shipwreck, "Mallory's" past is a complete mystery when a head injury causes amnesia. Cal Waterson doesn't expect to be so attracted to the young woman he rescued on the lakeshore. His small daughter wishes she had a mom, but he isn't looking for a wife. The more time the mysterious young woman spends in their company the more a tenuous bond grows. When a stranger arrives, saying he's from her past, Mallory must decide whether there's a true home for her heart in the past or the present. And Cal must decide if she is worth the gamble for their future.
