The Light Before Day (Nantucket Legacy #3) by Suzanne Woods Fisher

After three years on a whaling voyage, Henry Macy returns to Nantucket to news that his grandmother has passed, bequeathing her vast fortune to him and his sister, Hitty. And it was truly vast. But Lillian Coffin was no fool. The inheritance comes with a steep cost, including when they should marry and whom--a Quaker in good standing, of course. But if they relinquish the inheritance, it all goes to Tristram Macy, their father's thieving business partner.

As Hitty and Henry seek a way to satisfy the will's conditions, they'll be faced with obstacles on every side--and it may be that Lillian Coffin will have the last word after all.

Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher surprises and delights with this story of hope and renewal, love and redemption, arriving just when most needed.


About The Author

Suzanne Woods Fisher is the bestselling, award winning author of fiction and non-fiction books about the Old Order Amish for Revell Books, host of the radio-show-turned-blog Amish Wisdom, a columnist for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazine.

Her interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, who was raised Plain. A theme in her books (her life!) is that you don’t have to “go Amish” to incorporate the principles of simple living.

Suzanne lives in California with her family and raises puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. To her way of thinking, you just can't life too seriously when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone's underwear in its mouth.

My Review

This is the third book in this series that I have read, and it can be read alone, but they are all equally enjoyable.
If you are familiar with the Grandmother Lilian, if not, you soon will be, and it she at it again, even from the grave. She seems to delight in torment, and she pushes her agenda on her family, or what is left of it. Of course, many of the people of Nantucket go back to the original settlers and have become members of the Quaker Church. Now her grandchildren in order to receive their inheritance must follow her orders from the grave.
We are also transported back to Mary Coffin’s time, with the help of her journal, and then back to current day of the book, and wonder if these adult children, Henry and Hitty will be able to accept the wealth and follow all instructions?
I loved these books and am sad that they are ending, and yes, I would love to spend more time with these characters! Thank you, Suzanne Woods Fisher!

I received this book through the Publisher Revell, and was not required to give a positive review.
