Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant brings the peaceful sounds, sights, and characters of the coast vividly to life in the fourth book of the Lighthouse Circle of relatives series, in which the Circle of relatives rescues a trapped turtle.A thick fog has found its way up north to the Lighthouse Circle of relatives, surrounding the cliffs and the waters below. At all times able to have the same opinion, the lighthouse siblings, Whistler and Lila, assist Seabold guide small ships to land. As they omit the foggy waters, voice emerges from the rocks below. The usage of only a rope and their hearts as a guide, the lighthouse crew makes their way down the side of the cliff and find a lot more than the strongest light could have shown.
