In the summer of 1903, Louie, a thirteen year old boy, goes to live on Two Tree Island, a lighthouse station off the New England coast, to help his mother tend the light beacon. Still grieving over his Pa's accidental death, Louie tries to live up to his mother's expectations that he now grow up to be the "man in the family." Log entries in chronological order mark off day-to-day life. Louie's adventures with his pet sea gull and his friend, Charlie, include sailing on a Friendship sloop, fishing, and manning the light and fog horn during inclement weather. Boys who love baseball will join Louie and Charlie as the excitement builds for the first World Series to be played in Boston that fall. A visiting preacher and a mission sea captain and his family bring comfort and hope at critical moments in the story. Bible reading, prayer, and faith in God under gird this Lighthouse-keeping family. Faith and courage in times of crises of fog, storms, fire, and resisting peer pressure mold Louie's character.
After his father dies, 13 year old Louie Hollander and his mother must move away from their old home and find a way to make a living. They are hired as keepers of Two Tree Island Lighthouse on Windlass Bay - temporarily. In order to keep the job, Louie and his ma must prove that they can handle the hard work. Tending to the urgent task of protecting sea-going vessels from storm and fog keeps Louie scrambling, especially when equipment breaks down. And even with visits from mainland friends, island living is lonely. An injured sea gull becomes an unexpected pet and a visiting preacher becomes a new fishing buddy. But Louie grieves for his father and misses his best friend Charlie. Then Louie receives wonderful news. Charlie plans to spend the month of August on Two Tree Island. August can't come quickly enough. But, Louie finds that Charlie has changed a lot. Suddenly Louie must face difficult choices, especially when Charlie's behavior endangers the operation of the lighthouse. "Manning the Light maintains family values and spiritual foundations that are important in my family's life today. As a homeschooling mom, I recommend this book as part of a literature based American history curriculum." Elizabeth Giles Griner
