When Sheila Knight decided to leave a personal legacy by establishing a volunteer project in East Africa, she could never have imagined the journey that lay ahead nor the world she would be drawn into by Coleb, an orphaned village boy, who wasn't quite the innocent child he at first appeared to be. The Lighthouse Project is inspired by real events and chronicles the development of unlikely friendships built across cultural divides as those loyalties are tested against a background of deception, manipulation and ultimate tragedy.
