Synopsis

The years-long New York Times bestseller and major motion picture from Spielberg’s Dreamworks 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.

    Loved this book - it was without a doubt my book of 2013. The perfect combination of great writing and a compelling story. The final chapters had me sobbing! Wonderful emotional read

    The Light Between Oceans

    Well written but a little drawn out. Loved the descriptive details and the heart wrenching human story.

    The Light Between Oceans.

    This novel presents an interesting twist on a traditional plot. It is Shakespearian in nature. You at time hate and love each character. Great book. I'll tell others not to miss it.

    Had more of an emotional reaction to this book than I thought I would. I loved reading it and would recommend it.
