    1 thought on “The Last Lighthouse Keeper

    1. I liked this book, though it was predictable etc. Love the Cornish setting and Characters. A nice, quick, don't have to think too much read.

    2. Nice little book, with nice people and a nice storyline. My only criticism there is not enough seafaring.

    3. Beautiful story. Found it by accident at a used book sale. Boats, English coast, smuggling and the search for contentment and happiness

    4. A rather pleasant story, with quite a lot of references to boats and boatyards. That is to be expected when the hero (Will) is an out-of-work lighthouse keeper, who plans to sail the coast of England all by himself. He buys an old boat (which has an interesting story of its own) and is in the process of restoring it. He meets an artist (Amy) who herself has bought an old building and turned it into a gallery. They fall in love but Will and Amy have their not-so-happy pasts to deal with before th [...]

    5. This is a much lighter book that I would normally choose to read but one of its attractions was the Cornish setting.Mr Titchmarsh successfully evoked the village setting and although the female love interest was a little cliché, a beautiful, lithe ex-dancer and an artist to boot, the hero of the story was a rather attractive young man who didn't annoy me by letting his past totally ruin his future.There was the added spice of a little smuggling but the excitement preceding the denouement was qu [...]

    6. This was a delightful tale. Alan Titchmarsh is an English Gardener, who has anchored TV gardening shows for years. More recently he has done general TV presenting, and written several novels.The story of one of the last lighthouse keepers, a man who chose the solitary life at the lighthouse because of personal tragedy. Once the job at the lighthouse finishes, he buys an old boat and restores it, with the plan of sailing solo around the whole coast of England. That is until he meets an artist who [...]

    7. A light and breezy beach novel, very easy reading. Will decides to buy a boat with the money from an inheritance and sail around the coast of Britain, after the lighthouse he has been working in becomes automated. At the same time he is making plans to leave the village, Amy arrives in the village to open an art studio and escape her past. Of course they meet and the predictable happens.

    8. I was curious to know what kind of book this multi-faceted man writes! It is romantic, yes, but it really does have a solid background and setting. I feel I know more about boats and boatyards than I did. It's the kind of book you can curl up with and enjoy without any effort and I liked the simple writing style.

    9. This was a light and quick read about a lighthouse on the Cornish coast of England. A sweet story about a lightkeeper who has a new life to plan now that the lighthouse is no longer in service. It has a bit of romance, a bit of intrigue, and gives a good description of the coastline in Southern England. I enjoyed reading it.

    10. Easy, light reading. Nothing brilliant or earthshaking here, but enjoyable enough for an afternoon at the beach when on holiday. Reasonably well written if a bit clichéd and predictable - but exactly what I was looking for over the recent Easter break.

    11. A lovely read, very enjoyable, well researched, all the essentials, adventure, romance, locality, in depth analysis of emotions and reactions. Maybe Alan lost his way, he should have started writing fiction years ago IMHO.

    12. Lightweight, cliche, a little amusing, rather predictable, a holiday book for when you don't wish to think. Preferred

    13. Another subdued, but very warm British story. Read by the author on CD. Even the villains, such as they are, are nice. Kind of makes me want to move to a little Cornish village.

    14. I found that this was just a lovaable comfortable read, as I find all of this authors offerings. It takes me back to a warm and wonderful place that I would always want to stay in.

    15. Light and romantic. A real surprise for me when I read this. Now we know what thoughts are running through the mind of this famous gardener.

    16. Alan as the nation's head gardener is watchable, likeable and expert. This is the only novel of his that I've read. Stick to plants, Alan, please.
