The Lighthouse Project (working title) is inspired by true stories of female lighthouse keepers in the 1800’s. It folds psychological suspense, passion, and revelation into a story of quiet rebellion. Set on the austere, rugged coast of Maine in 1876, we meet Abbie Moore who is tending the remote lighthouse on behalf of her ailing husband. Knowing that many covet the job of lighthouse-keeper, she works to keep the villagers in the dark about her husband’s absence from his post.

As a North Atlantic storm tests her resolve, a Swedish sailor - hoping to find his wife who left him for a better life in America - jumps ship, lands on the rocks and brings both scandal and support. Secrets left in the deep waters unfold as we dive into the story of a woman fighting for her home, a man struggling to mend his past, an intimacy both shocking and surprising, and ultimately a question of who is saving whom.
