Description
Abbie Burgess helps her father care for a lighthouse on a small island off the coast of Maine. Together they tend the lamps, organize supplies, and watch the endless Atlantic waters. When Abbie's mother becomes ill, her father must sail to the mainland to find food and medicine. While her father is away a fierce winter storm descends, and Abbie must summon all her courage to care for her ailing mother, comfort her frightened sisters, and keep the flames of the lighthouse burning. Abbie Against the Storm is based on an actual incident that took place off the coast of Maine in the winter of 1856 and on a real young woman who rose to the challenge of saving her family and countless sailors.
