The Light Before Day by Suzanne Woods Fisher

This was an amazing book from a super-talented author.  The author has done a fantastic research work of a time period in the early years of our country.  The journal that appears in each of the books of the series, gives wonderful insights on the thoughts of Mary Coffin Starbuck.  And holds some important secrets.

Henry and Hitty Macy are siblings that have just inherited all of their grandmother's estate, but with many specifications which are difficult to abide by and absolutely required.  The requirements are many and both must accept them or not receive this inheritance.  Will they be able to keep those requirements?  And how will this estate affect the future on the Island?

The author does a fabulous job on this book.  It is full of history and the characters are wonderful and continued through the series.  It is probably best to read the entire series, yet the author does discuss people from previous books to bring the reader to understanding of their roles and refresh your mind, if you have read the other books.

A great read.  I love all of the books of the series!

I received an ebook copy from NetGalley.  All thoughts are my own.


  1. Thank you, Sonja! Such a wonderful review--I'm so glad you enjoyed meeting Mary Coffin Starbuck! Grateful how you pointed readers to the entire series. It might be historical fiction...but lots of relevant things for all of us to ponder today! Warmly, Suzanne
