The Island Adventures of Paul Stedman is a rare glimpse into a childhood spent at a lighthouse during the Great Depression. Young Stedman lived with his lighthouse keeper grandfather on Rose Island in Narragansett Bay within view of Newport, Rhode Island. The book is based on first-hand accounts from Stedman that he shared later in life. Island Adventures is unique in that it features historical fiction interspersed with history of the era, brought to life through rare archival photos, news accounts, and beautiful original illustrations. This is the second book of The Rose Island Lighthouse Series and was lovingly created by Rhode Island author Lynne Heinzmann in concert with the Rose Island Lighthouse and Hamilton Trust. The first book of the series, The Curious Childhood of Wanton Chase, was published by Woodhall Press in 2019.
