The Light Between Oceans

This is a story about right and wrong and how sometimes they look the same . . .. The heartbreaking Richard and Judy bestseller

The crying persisted. The door of the ligthhouse clanged in the distance, and Tom's tall frame appeared on the gallery as he scanned the island with the binoculars. 'Izzy!' he yelled, 'a boat!' He vanished and re-emerged at ground level. 'It's a boat all right,' Tom declared. 'And - oh cripes! There's a bloke, but - ' The figure was motionless, yet the cries still rang out. He hoisted out a woollen bundle: a woman's soft lavender cardigan wrapped around a tiny, screaming infant.

Tom Sherbourne, released from the horrors of the First World War, is now a lighthouse keeper, cocooned on a remote island with his young wife Izzy, who is content in everything but her failure to have a child.

One April morning, a boat washes ashore carrying a dead man - and a crying baby. Safe from the real world, Tom and Izzy break the rules and follow their hearts.

It is a decision with devastating consequences.

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... 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.
