  • The Lighthouse Mermaid
A short and sweet novel that I checked out of the library.I couldn't resist the cover - a young girl standing in front of a lighthouse painted in barber pole red and white.

Kate is the daughter of a lighthouse keeper in Maine.Her mother is hugely pregnant, so as the eldest child, the task of tending the lighthouse falls to Kate when her father goes ashore for provisions.A storm prevents him from returning on time, and Kate performs admirably.

One night as she was standing watch, Kate saw a boat that she was sure was her father, returning with food and other supplies.She ran down the beach and found two castaways - a mother and child - nearly frozen in the boat.Kate's actions save their lives and, in turn, the woman helps Kate's mother deliver a healthy child.

A classic happy-ending children's story that made me smile after all the not-so-happy ending books I've been reading lately.
