The book is available on Amazon in print or eBook formats, as well as B&N and Apple. You can find it locally at Studio 33 in New London. Curl up with this thriller about our treasured local landmark ... but keep the lights on while you read! Then come out on a tour and find the clues to the mysteries of the shadows of Ledge Light.

Ledge Light Stamp

Please note that the Ledge Lighthouse passport stamp is only available to those who come out to the lighthouse on a summer tour. Seeing it from ashore or a passing ferry/boat does not qualify as a visit to the lighthouse.

The Ledge Light Foundation does not provide lighthouse stamps by mail.
