"A gorgeous story of family and secrets and the redemptive power of love."--Kate Morton, author of The Distant Hours and The Forgotten Garden
"Freeman skillfully unites the stories of two women who live a century apart but both face the challenge of overcoming difficult pasts, and both under the lighthouse's watchful presence. . . . Freeman's moving tale gives her two heroines the unique chance to make a fresh start in life."--Publishers Weekly
"The author's description of the beautiful Australian coastline will linger with readers long after they finish the book."--Kirkus Reviews
"Freeman weaves the two time periods together so seamlessly."--Booklist
"What a perfect beach read. A sunken ship, buried treasure, a home on the beach by the lighthouse, sister relationships, adventure, and romance. Lighthouse Bay packs a lot into its two-pronged story."--atravelerslibrary.com
"The novel's strength instead lies in Freeman's complex characters--capable of love and hate, shame and redemption. Both Beattie and Emma find themselves having to start over, and it is for these two women that readers cheer and sympathize."--Publishers Weekly
"By the last satisfying scene, you may find yourself reluctantly parting with old friends who will live on once the cover has closed. Highly recommended."--Historical Novels Review
"[Freeman] made her characters come to life, the scenery visible through her words, and the story was believable and made me want to read more."--Book Nook Club
"The complexities of character and female relationships make this novel very rich and emotional."--Examiner.com
