A Fixed White Light

This beautiful book of poetry by poet and modern-day lighthouse keeper Suellen Wedmore is a tribute to the unique history and beauty of lighthouses and the people who have maintained them. A Fixed White Light celebrates the heroism of Thacher Island’s Maria Bray. In 1864 during her island-keeper husband’s absence, Maria kept the lights of the twin towers burning for the three days and nights of a life-threatening blizzard, warning imperiled mariners to avoid the rocks and find safe harbor nearby.
