The Light Between Oceans

Το φως ανάμεσα στους ωκεανούς

After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day's journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season and shore leaves are granted every other year at best, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby's cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.
Tom, whose records as a lighthouse keeper are meticulous and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel has taken the tiny baby to her breast. Against Tom's judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.
M. L. Stedman's mesmerizing, beautifully written novel seduces us into accommodating Isabel's decision to keep this "gift from God." And we are swept into a story about extraordinarily compelling characters seeking to find their North Star in a world where there is no right answer, where justice for one person is another's tragic loss.
The Light Between Oceans is exquisite and unforgettable, a deeply moving novel.

I loved this book!

I loved this book, from cover to cover, I was totally enthralled and found myself looking forward to getting to bed a little earlier so that I would have some extra time to devote to my reading :) The author manages to portray the "Human-ness" of the characters well.

I loved this book, from cover to cover, I was totally enthralled and found myself looking forward to getting to bed a little earlier so that I would have some extra time to devote to my reading :) The author manages to portray the "Human-ness" of the characters well. One gets confronted with the different options we have in our day-to-day lives. The fine line between what is right, what is wrong and what the heart just wants! I often am touched by a well written book, but never have had the experience of literally sitting there, tissue in hand, trying to decipher the blurry words through eyes full of tears! This was an extremely touching novel portraying the diversity of complex emotions and reactions as they can only be experienced in the "Real-World" I would warmly recommend this book to anyone who wants to snuggle down with a really good book.
