The Light Between Oceans | Be Careful What You Wish For

The Light Between OceansThe Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Living alone on a small southwestern island, the happiness of an Australian lighthouse keeper and his new wife is nearly complete, until a series of miscarriages threatens to drown them in sorrow. When they discover an orphaned baby washed up on shore, it seems as if their prayers have been answered. Over the course of time, their decision to keep the child as their own has heart-breaking consequences which ripple out from the island and back again. I was captivated by this book, with its vivid sense of place, strong characters, and interesting moral dilemma, deftly weaving together multiple points of view, on and off the island.
