Abbie was afraid. She had never had to keep the lights burning by herself before. But many lives depended on the lighthouse, and Papa was depending on Abbie. This is the exciting true story of Abbie Burgess, who single-handedly kept the lighthouse lamps lit during the tremendous storm off the coast of Maine in 1856.

Quite compelling! This was a great story about Abbie's courage and perseverance. Would work well for a character study.
Abbie's father runs a lighthouse. When here father is stuck in town Abbie must keep the lights on during a long storm. A good read for a reluctant reader.
