Join us this entire week as we share trivia, fun, and giveaways to celebrate the release of Phoebe’s Light!
Most houses in Nantucket have steps hugging the house, positioned sideways, instead of leading to the sideway. Any idea why? And do you know these steps are called?
Think you know the answer? For a chance to win a copy of Phoebe’s Light and a $5 Starbucks gift card, fill out the answer in the Rafflecopter. Winner (and answer) will be announced on tomorrow’s post! Good luck!
Yesterday’s answer: A watering fountain for horses.

More about Phoebe’s Light
Phoebe Starbuck has always adjusted her sails and rudder to the whims of her father. Now, for the first time, she’s doing what she wants to do: marrying Captain Phineas Foulger and sailing far away from Nantucket. As she leaves on her grand adventure, her father gives her two gifts, both of which Phoebe sees little need for. The first is an old sheepskin journal from Great Mary, her highly revered great-grandmother. The other is a “minder” on the whaling ship in the form of cooper Matthew Mitchell, a man whom she loathes.
Soon Phoebe discovers that life at sea is no easier than life on land. Lonely, seasick, and disillusioned, she turns the pages of Great Mary’s journal and finds herself drawn into the life of this noble woman. To Phoebe’s shock, her great-grandmother has left a secret behind that carries repercussions for everyone aboard the ship, especially her husband the captain and her shadow the cooper. This story within a story catapults Phoebe into seeing her life in an entirely new way–just in time.
In this brand-new series, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher brings her signature twists and turns to bear on a fascinating new faith community: the Quakers of colonial-era Nantucket Island.
