About the Book
Tessa Taylor arrives in 1870s Upper Peninsula, Michigan, planning to serve as a new teacher to the town. Much to her dismay, however, she immediately learns that there was a mistake, that the town had requested a male teacher. Percival Updegraff, superintendent and chief mine clerk, says she can stay through winter since they won't be able to locate a new teacher before then, and Tessa can't help but say she is in his debt. Little does she know that Percival will indeed keep track of all that she owes him.
Determined to become indispensable, Tessa throws herself into teaching, and soon the children of the widowed lighthouse keeper have decided she's the right match for their grieving father. Their uncle and assistant light keeper, Alex Bjorklund, has his own feelings for Tessa. As the two brothers begin competing for her hand, Tessa increasingly feels that someone is tracking her every move, and she may not be able to escape the trap that has been laid for her.

About the Author
Jody Hedlund is an award-winning and bestselling author of inspirational historical romances for both youth and adults.
As a busy mama-writer, she has the wonderful privilege of teaching her crew of 5 children at home. In between grading math papers and giving spelling tests, she occasionally does a load of laundry and washes dishes. When she's not busy being a mama, you can find her in front of her laptop working on another of her page-turning stories.
She loves reading almost as much as she loves writing, especially when it also involves chocolate and coffee.
Award-winning author Jody Hedlund has written another novel in the Beacons of Hope series, Undaunted Hope, which readers will not be able to put down. From page one, readers will fall in love with the main character, school teacher Tessa Taylor, a character readers previously met earlier in the series who finally gets her own story. Readers will also enjoy the love triangle and banter as two brothers, Alex and Michael Bjorklund battle for Tessa’s affection. This story is filled with excitement, tragedy, and romance. It is about a town that is run by a tyrant and how they come together to get rid of him. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy historical fiction, romance, and inspirational-Christian fiction.
