The Light Between Oceans by M.L. StedmanDirections & Maps
The harsh and untamed island outpost of Janus Rock serves as a fitting backdrop to introduce this story of isolation and loss by first time novelist M.L. Stedman. Thomas Sherbourne has been shattered by his experience on the front lines during World War I and seeks peace and solace tending a light house on an extremely remote island off the coast of Western Australia. When a small boat washes ashore carrying a living infant alongside her dead father, Thomas and his wife Isabel see it as a miracle—the child a gift from God. Isabel has just given birth to a stillborn child. Grieving for her own infant and longing for motherhood, she and Thomas decide to raise the child as their own. When they return to the mainland after two years, events unfold that lead to a moral dilemma.
