"The Light Between Oceans" by M.L. Stedman is another book that is hard to put down. Tom Sherbourne, a war hero, returns to Australia and is the new lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock. He takes his young wife Isabel to this island where a supply boat comes once a season and the couple receive shore leave every other year. They are very isolated from the outside world. The first few years Isabel suffers through two miscarriages and one stillbirth. Days after the stillbirth Isabel hears a baby crying and Tom discovers a rowboat washed onshore. In the boat is a dead man and a crying baby wrapped in a woman's sweater. Tom wants to report this immediately but Isabel talks him out of it. She asks him to wait until the next day. By the next day Isabel has talked Tom into not reporting the incident. She is sure the baby's mother has also died. If they report the incident the baby will be put up for adoption and because of their living circumstances they would not be chosen. They decide to keep the baby and name her Lucy. Isabel truly believes this is a miracle and the baby is a gift from God. Two years later when they return to the mainland for a short stay, they realize that their decision has devastated others. Now they both have to make a decision on what to do. This is an enjoyable book and I have to say more then once I was in tears. It is hard not to care about all the people involved. Book clubs will enjoy this book. Whether it is a favorite or not I can guarantee clubs will have a lot to discuss.
