Many years later and many miles from the sea, Eliza tells her brother, Andrew John, of the time when she lived by the sea and helped to tend her father's lighthouse. It was a time of hard lessons of friendship, family, and the world. Christina Moore is a fine narrator for this story of California in the late 1800s. Moore's voice has the youthful earnestness of 13-year-old Eliza experiencing events that change her life forever. Hesitation, reticence, disappointment, resiliency, and freshness are among the tools in her "voice box." Above all, she mirrors Eliza's conviction that love, beauty, and hope exist in a world that also includes great sadness. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
