A look at life at the Pilot Islands lighthouse in the 1800s is the subject of a historical novel written by a veteran Door County author. Judy DuCharme of Ellison Bay will release her seventh book this month entitled “Lainey of the Door Islands”. The heroine is a young woman who spends time with her aunt and uncle, the lighthouse tenders. Lainey is a strong-minded young woman who faces tragedy and triumph in challenging times. DuCharme blended her own research and visits to Rock and Pilot Islands to develop the characters and the 19th-century lifestyles.
DuCharme hopes readers will take the time to visit Door County and get up close to the lighthouses to experience Lainey's world. “Lainey of the Door Islands” goes on sale July 24th
