Publisher Summary
In seventeenth-century England, eleven-year-old Digory becomes an apprentice to the architect Henry Winstanley, who built a lighthouse on the treacherous Eddystone Reef -- the very rocks that sank Digory's grandfather's ship years before.

The harrowing adventure of a boy, a real-life famous daredevil, and a monster storm!

When a storm brings down his father's boat, Digory Beale is forced to leave home to discover his fate. For if Digory has been orphaned, he can never go home again.

On his journey, Digory becomes the apprentice to Henry Winstanley, a charming stranger whose life's obsession is to save sailors' lives. Digory must face his fears of the sea to help Henry bring candles to the amazing rock lighthouse Henry has built on a killer reef. But who could have known the force of the monster storm that was heading their way? In this poignant page-turner, Digory comes to understand the many facets of courage -- and what it means to be a true hero.
