First of all, please remember this was originally published in 1992, these 'reissues' with trendy covers may mislead new fans of Diane. That said, i cannot recommend this trilogy enough, please read them in the correct order or you you spoil your fun. I actually prefer Dianes older titles than some of her new ones : its like she put more effort and detail into the story lines. There are so many golden nuggets in this trilogy, twists & turns and undiscovered threads, brilliant!

Took this book on holiday and found it really enjoyable. Often hooked and unable to put it down. It is an easy read, which is not meant as a criticism, where the plot is fairly transparent but the characters are interesting and I cared about what happened to them. Overall it was very good, I wasn't aware of Diane Chamberlain before but I'll certainly read more of her work.

This is the first book in a trilogy, it is followed by Kiss River and Her Mothers Shadow. This is one of Diane Chamberlains older books, now re-released with a more modern cover. From the first page of Keeper of the light I was hooked. As usual DC manages to fill her book with emotion, and her characters seem to spring to life. I did not Really care for "saint Annie", or Paul, I felt they hurt so many people in their life's not caring about the consequences of their actions. There are plenty of twists and turns along the way, which keep the reader intrigued, as to how it will all end.If you have never read a Diane Chamberlain book, I suggest you pick one up, you will not be disappointed. Well worth a read, now looking forward to starting on kiss River.

I am absolutaly loving Diana Chamberlain. Having now read most of her books, I don't find her to be repetative like most authors. Keeper of the light is full of twists and turns and characters who take you by surprise. I would certainly recommend to anyone who wants a good read.

While Olivia is working in ER a gunshot victim comes in who unfortunately as hard as Olivia tries cannot be saved. It is Annie O'Neill, the woman Olivia's husband Paul is in love with. Unable to cope with Paul's grief over losing Annie, Olivia and her husband separate. Circumstances prevail and Olivia finds herself stepping into the shoes of the wonderful Annie who everybody loved, even to the point of befriending Annie's bereaved husband and daughter.
As with all of Diane Chamberlain's books she manages so well to get straight to the heart of the matter, especially when writing about family complexities.
An excellent read.

I enjoyed the story and the characterisation was very good but if I never read the words 'lighthouse', 'red hair' or 'stained glass' again it'll be too soon.

An amazing story with all characters linked in some way to the lighthouse and former lighthouse keeper being the central characters until right to the end of the book. Some well worked twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. Unputdownable!

I made the mistake of reading this straight after Necessary Lies, which set a precedent that this book just didn't follow. But I understand this is one of her earlier books written some years previously, which explains a lot. I found it too long with too many long pages of pointless scenes, too detailed dialogue - almost like reading a blow by blow account of someone cooking dinner. Unlike a previous reviewer I had the opposite issue with Olivia and Paul - I could relate to Olivia, but Paul was just plain irritating and selfish, despite later revelations that explain his actions. I also found some of the other relationships unrealistic, and dare I say it, one of the sex scenes was just too long and detailed for me. I only finished it to pas the time on a long journey. Very disappointing.

This book was boringly slow to get going. In fact I had read 84% and still didn't know the story which is a shame as its so different to The Midwives Confession which I was hooked on from the start! Saying that, it did get good.....but only towards the end. Hope the other two in the trilogy are not like this.
