A fictionalized account based on the life of Stella Maria Prince Terry, the only woman to serve as a lighthouse keeper at Horton Point Lighthouse. Stella lived at the lighthouse for more than half of her life: from 1871 when she was three years of age until she married at 37. A remarkable woman who resists society's expectations and dedicates herself to a life of hard work out of a sense of duty.
The reader will experience life on the North Fork of Long Island in the 1800s against the backdrop of the rigor required to maintain a lighthouse, Horton Point.
This is Mary Korpi's first foray into historical fiction. She is a recent retiree to the North Fork and a docent at Horton Point Lighthouse. Researching the lighthouse keepers, she discovered Stella. Stella's work is yet to be recognized by the federal government a fact that Mrs. Korpi hopes to change in the near future.
