A Watch in the Night
Author: Ruth Edgett
A Watch in the Night chronicles the struggles of one Nova Scotia family to survive on a tiny windswept island without running water, electricity, or reliable communication with the mainland. For thirty-six years, George and Ruth Millar tended the Pomquet Island light, raised generations of livestock, brought up their six children, and lived through violent storms and other weather disasters.A Watch in the Night is not a dry account of lightkeeping life, but rather a tale in which faith, ingenuity, and tenderness triumph over adversity.
