A novel for young adults by Cori Mordaunt

Will Lindsay, son of the Point Clark lightkeeper, is nearly thirteen—old enough to put down hay, drive the old horse for the school-day run, and catch wild turkeys with his friend Angus. When his father must leave for town, Will takes responsibility for the light. He has practised in the lantern room during calm weather, but a hurricane-force wind is blowing. Ice clouds the windows through which the beacon must shine to aid ships in danger on Lake Huron.

Cori Mordaunt vividly portrays realities of The great storm of 1913 as Will struggles to Keep the Light Burning.
