The Lighthouse Keeper’s Wife
The Lighthouse Keeper’s Wife by Connie Scovill Small. Newly revised edition from the University of Maine Press, Orono, Maine, 1999, that includes many additional photographs from the author’s collection. In a genuine and remarkably captivating voice, Connie Scovill Small writes about her twenty-eight years of lighthouse living and service along the Maine and New Hampshire coasts with her husband, Elson. While her autobiography is a compelling narrative about a life of “people risking their own lives to help men and ships: a life of order and duty, ” is also inspires and encourages us to “look up and never down” in our shared search for a meaningful existence in the inevitable isolation and uncertainty of living. 250 pages with 30+ photographs and a map.
