This work by Harriet Theresa Comstock is filled with the air and waves of the sea! It richly inhabits the environment, just as its characters do, as well as relying on each other in tough spots. An old-fashioned story of life in a coastal town on Long Island. All is centered around a lighthouse and a life saving station, where Cap'n Billy Daddy works. He also takes care of Janet, whose mother is out of the picture. One day a young painter comes to the dunes to paint, sees Janet, and asks to paint her and the two fall in love...and then Janet's rich biological father shows up.
