Walk with Lainey into the world of Door County and its islands in the late 1800s.

A time of shipwrecks, lighthouses, and strong people that never give up.

Lighthouse keepers risk their lives every day to save others and protect those on ships on the Great Lakes. But for Lainey, life on tiny Pilot Island is a hard place for summer vacation—Aunt Edith is always making her do chores and fussing at her. And Uncle Otis needs a lot of help to man the lighthouse.

When disaster hits, Lainey must find the courage and strength of those who make their lives on these treacherous islands. With humor, faith, close friendships, and a young man who interferes with her ability to think, Lainey becomes a shining light of spunk and grace.

Lainey of the Door Islands will touch your heart and show you that even in what feels like the worst circumstances, God has a plan to prosper and not to harm.


Judy DuCharme grew up with Lake Huron next to her back yard and has always loved the water. She, her husband, daughter, and son have lived in Door County, a peninsula that juts into Lake Michigan in Northeast Wisconsin, since 1984. After teaching 5th Grade for 22 years, Judy followed the calling that tugged at her all her life to write. Lainey of the Door Islands is her 7th published book and she is the recipient of numerous awards. If you visit Door County, you may find her hiking in the woods, jet skiing on the bay, worshipping at her church, teaching a Bible study, cheering for the Green Bay Packers, playing with her grandson, or sitting with her dog outside enjoying the beauty around her.
