A gently bred Southern woman in the 19th cent. lives at a remote lighthouse on an island in the Florida Keys with her husband and two children. One day her husband does not return from a fishing trip, and Emily must hide her pregnancy from the officials, and keep the lighthouse going, as she expects some eventual word from her husband. She deals with her in-bred beliefs about slavery and feminism in her struggles. A wonderful book.
