Terri Martin
A Family Trait  "Set in the early 1960s, Martin's novel traces the girl's journey toward understanding the true meaning of love, family, and friendship.

The plot and characters work well together and have enough action and interaction to provide a good read."  (From School Library Journal)


"The historical fiction FINDING MY LIGHT is very close to my heart, as it is based on my ancestors. My great-great-great grandmother was one of the first woman lighthouse keepers on the Great Lakes. She and her family lived at the Marquette Michigan Lighthouse during the Civil War. I so enjoyed researching and writing this novel."
