Who knew there was a famous woman lighthouse keeper? i certainly didn't. But this lovely picture book tells us about her life, learning to row a boat so well while a teen that she could brave the choppy ocean to rescue trapped sailors. She wasn't allowed to legally own the lighthouse but after her father's illness, she basically ran it while it was still in his name.
