“A tepid 3★
The summary of this tale was enticing.
Sadly, I experienced little of this reviewer's enthusiasm.
I'm waiting for other friends to read this and share their comments”
“Although it's about a woman living at an isolated lighthouse at the end of the 19th century, "The Edge of the Earth" is not just another lighthouse story. Lyrical, moving, and wonderfully descriptive, Christina Schwarz has given us a group of characters that will linger long after the last page.”travelingmamma wrote this review Tuesday, September 24, 2013.

“Trudy is very smart and has a bright future ahead of her. Her family can almost hear the wedding bells ringing for Trudy. There is just one problem. They did not expect Trudy to fall for a guy like Oskar.
Trudy and Oskar move away and accept a job at a lighthouse. Trudy becomes a teacher to the Crawley children. The other family that lives at the lighthouse. Whereas Oskar is fascinated by his inventions and electricity. Oskar finds a cave and a mysterious woman living in it. He finds her intriguing.
I enjoyed the book, but think it should have had a quicker pace, and feel it took much too long for Trudy to see her husband for what he was. It didn't feel true to the character.”
“In 1898 young couple from Wisconsin leave their home to take a job as lighthouse Keeper in a Lighthouse in California. I love lighthouses so anything about them makes me happy. This book was magical and moving story of secrets and self-transformation, ruses and rebirths, masterfully told by a celebrated and accomplished author”Kathe Coleman wrote this review Friday, August 2, 2013.

“This is another of those stories that take you away to another time and place. I absolutely loved it! Of course I've always loved the idea of a lighthouse, even though I wouldn't want to live in one.”Carla H wrote this review Thursday, June 20, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?
