Agnes’ plummet inside the lighthouse is the stuff of local lore and ghost stories. But was her death her fault, driven by mental illness? Or, did the lighthouse keeper play a part? The teacher? This historical literary fiction illumines struggles meant to stay shrouded in a time when patience was a virtue, a lighthouse saved lives, and an earthquake was the furthest notion in the minds of Charlestonians.
