With her husband lost at sea, Nora couldn't afford the lighthouse upkeep. I used my family influence to declare it a protected historic monument. I appointed Nora the lighthouse steward and the McQuoddys its guardian until the family line dies out, or the sun swallows the earth in a solar flare, killing us all.
