Sarah stands on the brink, arms open wide as if to let the wind carry her away.

She’s come to the high cliffs to be alone, to face the truth about her life, to work out what to do.

Her lover Jack is searching, desperate to find her before it is too late. But Sarah doesn’t want to be found. Not yet. Not by him.

And someone else is seeking answers up here where the seabirds soar – a man known only as the Keeper, living in an old lighthouse right on the cusp of a four-hundred-foot drop. He is all too aware that sometimes love takes you to the edge . . .

Press Reviews

Cole writes with human warmth and bittersweet emotion. I loved this.

- Matt Haig, number one best-selling author of The Humans, Reasons To Stay Alive and Notes On A Nervous Planet

Tremendous speed and pace. The ending took me completely by surprise.

- Jeffrey Archer, king of the plot twist and multi-million selling author of thrillers Kane and Abel, First Among Equals and many more

A beautifully haunting read. Evocative, spiritual and deeply immersive.

- The Revd Kate Bottley

Cole Moreton writes with a poetic beauty and a very sharp eye. Mesmerising and lyrical, he creates atmosphere you can breathe and emotion that can shred your heart.

- Peter James, multi-million selling thriller writer, holder of the Diamond Dagger award, winner of the WH Smith poll for the Best Crime Author of All Time

The Light Keeper is as compelling and ambitious as it is deeply moving. In the interchange of landscape, characters, the here and now and the 'other', it brilliantly captures the real spiritual debate of the twenty-first century.

- Peter Stanford, Telegraph cultural commentator and author of best selling books on Judas, Luther and The Devil

An absolute thing of beauty. Not like anything else I've read. Really involving & emotional. Fabulous.

- Jane Fallon, author of eight top ten best-selling novels including Getting Rid of Matthew and Faking Friend

Beautifully tense and atmospheric. It feels like the characters are at the edge of the world and could fall off at any time. A page-turner.

- Marianne Power, author of the acclaimed Help Me!
