So, things I remember about the book:
1) Romance novel.
2) Given that I read it sometime between 1988 and 1995, it probably belonged to my mom, so it was probably a Christian inspirational romance novel, but it might not have been. And, obviously, published before 1995. It was a fairly slender paperback.
3) Historical, set on an island, possibly with a lighthouse.
4) Heroine has come to the island to marry the hero, who was tragically widowed under mysterious circumstances (no it's not Rebecca) but he's moody and etc., which ultimately turns out to be largely due to the secret-even-from-him opiate addiction he's got going on.
5) First wife's name was Patience, leading the heroine to edit that term and its derivatives out of her speech with the hero, leading to her talking about "forbearance" at least once.
