I loved this audiobook! I had read a couple of really good reviews for the book and decided to give the audio a try. I am so glad that I did. I couldn't get this book out of my head. If I wasn't listening to it, I was thinking about it. I listened to it for hours at a time and never tired of the story. I am so glad that I took a chance and bought this book. Faye is in a bad place in her life at the start of this book. She is in a marriage that has reached its final days and is still grieving the husband she lost 4 years earlier. She asks for a divorce and leaves to do a photography job. She is going to take photos of lighthouses in the area but is really drawn to the lighthouse on Bride Island. When she sees a photo of the lighthouses caretaker from nearly a hundred years ago, she is floored because it looks just her dead husband. Fate enters the picture when she is transported to the past and finds herself with that man who looks just like her dead husband. Carrick not only looks like her dead husband but has many of his mannerisms. Faye finds herself occupying Faith's body who looks remarkably like her. Can they love each other for who they really are instead of who they look like? I really liked Faye and Carrick together. They seemed so right together and really seemed to come alive when they were with each other. They were very honest with each other and had a lot of respect for the other's feelings. I loved the secondary characters as well. Dolly was just amazing and I liked the link to her in the present time. Father Pat was very wise and kind and was even willing to help make things happen. I thought Teri Schnaubelt was the perfect narrator for this story. I have never listened to her narration before but I really want to listen to her again soon. She did such a good job with all of the different voices in this book. I really felt all of the emotions of the story and never felt like the reading was over the top in any way. She had a really nice delivery that made this an incredibly enjoyable experience. I am pretty sure that I liked this book a little more because I decided to go with the audio. I would highly recommend this book to fans of time travel romance. This book is filled with wonderful characters and a really interesting story. This was the first time that I have ever read anything by Tiffany Reisz but I hope to read more very soon.
Faye Barlow has lived in agony since the death of her beloved husband Will four years ago. Faye takes a photography job in Beaufort, South Carolina as a refuge from a failed marriage to Will’s best friend and to continue to grieve Will. As she travels around Beaufort taking pictures of landmarks, she see’s a wrecked lighthouse and is intrigued by its story. When she goes to the library to research it, she notices a picture of its caretaker who is the mirror image of her husband Will. She learns of the story about Bride Island Lighthouse, the legend of the Lady of the Light and the inhabitants who lived on the island. She goes out to the lighthouse for a closer look and has her feet swept out from under her by a wave, and comes out of the water in 1921 face to face with what looks to be her husband. This was a lovingly told story of a woman who survives loss and finds love again in 1921. An era that was pre World War II, pre depression, during prohibition, before pre Civil Rights, and before women have the right to vote. Women are only slightly better than property to their husbands and modern day Faye is an anomaly in that time. The fish out of water parts of this book were both eye opening and fun to read, but her struggles to milk a goat paled in comparison to her education of how black people were treated at that time. Her growing feelings for Carrick were clouded by his looking like her dead husband. In addition to overcoming that obstacle, Faye is Faith, a runaway abused wife of one of Carricks Navy buddies. There were a lot of obstacles to this love story and intricacies to the plot that made the ending very satisfactory and moving.
Faye Barlow lost her soul mate, Will four years earlier. Then her marriage to his best friend has not been that great. So she turns to something that she loves, photography. While in Beaufort she meets Father Pat, the man that painted a mysterious woman. After sharing her past with him, he tells her about the painting, the lighthouse, and Carrick Morgan. When she is swept away by a wave, Faye finds herself saved by Carrick. She slowly learns that she is actually Faith Morgan, Carrick’s daughter. Faith died of a mysterious drowning and we are along for the ride for the truth. I was heartbroken about Faye. She lost the love of her life, was stuck in a non to happy marriage, had two miscarriages, and just feels like nothing is ever going to look up again. She was basically existing and the divorce left her with almost nothing. Carrick is a true gentleman and you can’t help but be swept off your feet like Faye was. But where does Faye’s live need to be? In 1921 with Carrick or in present day? This is a great romance that crosses the ages. There is hardship and happiness and beautiful settings. This is a great story that will tug at your heart strings. This is one worth checking out. I received The Night Mark from the publisher for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
Another AMAZING story! Well worth reading over and over again.

I loved this story so much that I do not want to write a review that will give away too much. I will say, and I am going to date myself but I loved the movie Somewhere in Time as a kid and reading this reminded me so much of why I loved that movie. The first part of the story had me kind of heart broken. Faye has lost the love her life, she cannot have babies and is in a loveless, stifling marriage. Then Faye takes charge of her life and gets divorced and starts over. That is when we get mystical as Faye becomes fascinated with woman in a painting and a light house. It just gets so beautiful and hopeful as Faye is caught between to different times and a second chance at love. I was just so swept away but this beautiful romance. I was hooked into the story and the characters from page one. I had to put the book down so I could go to sleep and work the next morning though I so did not want to. It just made me feel warm and fuzzy after finishing this. This is my new favorite book by Ms. Reisz. 5Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the publisher.*
