Kathleen Kelly, a journalist on assignment to interview residents of a small coastal town with a romantic lighthouse known as the “1-4-3” light that was recently entered into the National Register of Historic Places.

She observed a well-tailored man exit the local bookstore and walk towards her. As he approached he greeted her. “Hello, I’m Henry Walsh a lifelong resident, may I help you in finding what you appear to be searching for?” “Thank you, I’m a journalist in town from Wichita, Kansas to discover the history of the Minot Ledge Lighthouse and its reputation of being the most romantic lighthouse in America.” She handed him her business card. “Kathleen, artistic card. Do I call you Kathleen or Kathy?” “I prefer Kathleen.”

He escorted her to a nearby park bench. “What would you like to know about our historic lighthouse?” “Why is it considered the most romantic, forever love, if there is such a thing and the most tragic lighthouse in the United States?”

Yes, we have people near and far come to share their memories and to make romantic new ones. Both felt an unfamiliar inner connection. “I like the way my name sounds when he says, Kathleen,” she thought. They talked for a long time as Kathleen gathered enough information to write her article, though she still needed to see it and experience the celebration that evening. When they parted both wondered what path was in store for them.

Rebecca watched him slowly walk to his truck. She thought he was the classic image of a handsome, tanned, brawny construction contractor.

Rebecca sighed as she observed the women standing nearby likely having the same impression.

Rebecca Wilson is the owner of a daily journal newspaper and the owner of a cottage on the outskirts of a small coastal town. She agreed to rent her cottage to the construction company owner responsible for the Gay Head Lighthouse relocation. Later, she wondered, if he could be the forever love she searched for after being left at the altar.

Edward Walsh was polite and businesslike during their meeting and grateful for Rebecca renting him her cottage for the three-plus months he would be in town for the project. He didn’t give any clues to his thoughts of Rebecca. He did surmise that she would not be willing to relocate to North Carolina.

Edward reached out to Rebecca to have dinner with him. The relationship developed into a lovely friendship as she provided tours of the Island to him.

As the project was moving at a decent pace, it gave Edward the chance to spend time with Rebecca and develop a lovely friendship.

This book has a remarkable and romantic ending for the Heirloom Rings Final Resting Place.

“My hand touched my heart.”

“My eyes were misty.”
