    Marged Brice is 134 years old.
    She'd be ready to go, if it weren't for Perdita . .
    .

    The Georgian Bay lighthouse's single eye keeps watch over storm and calm, and Marged grew up in its shadow, learning the language of the wind and the trees. There's blustery beauty there, where sea and sky incite each other to mischief... or worse...

    Garth Hellyer of the Longevity Project doesn't believe Marged was a girl coming of age in the 1890s, but reading her diaries in the same wild and unpredictable location where she wrote them might be enough to cast doubt on his common sense.

    Everyone knows about death.
    It's life that's much more mysterious...

    "Hilary Scharper deftly mines the beauty and wonder of both the human heart and nature in this haunting tale of enduring love."—Cathy Marie Buchanan, bestselling author of The Painted Girls
