Michael O'Brien's Newest Novel Speaks to Loneliness Pandemic

Captivating book follows a solitary lighthouse keeper and the secret of his past

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 29, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- Written long before the coronavirus and resulting quarantine made national headlines, bestselling author Michael D. O'Brien's newest novel, THE LIGHTHOUSE, features Ethan McQuarry, a solitary figure who lives in and runs a lighthouse off the coast of Nova Scotia. He lives a lonely life, certainly one to which many in today's world can relate.

A secret from McQuarry's past manifests itself in his present life and his loneliness and selflessness ultimately lead to his own redemption and self-sacrifice.

O'Brien, iconographer, painter and writer, is the popular author of many bestselling novels, including Father Elijah, Elijah in Jerusalem, The Father's Tale, Eclipse of the Sun, Sophia House, Theophilos, The Fool of New York City, and Island of the World. His novels have been translated into twelve languages and widely reviewed in both secular and religious media in North America and Europe.

In THE LIGHTHOUSE, McQuarry cherishes his solitude and is grateful that his interactions with human beings are rare. Even so, he is haunted by his loneliness in the world and by a feeling that his life is meaningless. His courage, his integrity, his love of the sea and wildlife, of practical skills and of learning are, in the end, not enough. He is faced with internal storms and sometimes literal storms of terrifying power.

With a foreword by Peter Kreeft, THE LIGHTHOUSE weaves a story that brings readers right up alongside McQuarry, on his own island, as he confronts his solitude, a secret from his past that shows up to the lighthouse, and how he gives of himself for others despite being so alone.

"Michael O'Brien is a superior spiritual story teller worthy to join the ranks of Flannery O'Connor, Graham Greene, Evelyn Waugh and C. S. Lewis," said Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., Bestselling Author; Professor of Philosophy, Boston College.
