The Light Between Oceans

A Novel

(1)
The years-long New York Times bestseller soon to be a major motion picture from Spielberg’s Dreamworks that is “irresistible…seductive…with a high concept plot that keeps you riveted from the first page” (O, The Oprah Magazine).

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, 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, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and 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.

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. 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.
