Editorial Reviews

Review

"...an astonishing, unputdownable debut. The Lighthouse is a beautifully written novel that is emotionally compelling but ultimately an uplifting tale of love and hope. The characters are exceptionally well-drawn, the setting is unforgettable, and it takes you on an incredible journey of loss and love to a pitch perfect ending. This is the best novel I have read this year..." - NZ Booklovers


"This smart, suspenseful, and briskly paced work will keep readers guessing. ...a haunting but hopeful work of supernatural fiction that comes to a satisfying conclusion....seriously fun..."
- Kirkus Reviews


"Bloody amazing. The Lighthouse will have you laughing then weeping. I couldn't put it down."
- Tina Shaw, author of The Children's Pond


"Parker's debut novel is a work of character-driven magical realism dealing with themes of filial love, grief, and existence in the liminal space between life and death. Readers who follow its mysterious night will be rewarded with intriguing twists and lovable characters."
– Booklife


"This novel meticulously examines grief and the reverberations it has through lives... The emotional arc is strong and clear, not forgotten in the twists and turns of an ambitious story."
- Kete Books
