‘Enhanced with beautiful drawings, Grandpa’s Dear Old Girl is an exciting, fascinating and moving story of lighthouses, their keepers – where they still exist – and the work they do,’  says Writing and Editing Consultant Garry Sutton, whose great grandfather worked for the Irish lighthouse service as an inspector.
