The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book was recommended to me by two friends–neither of whom had read it–because it involves a lighthouse. Those who know me know my obsession with beacons and stories about them.
This is a sad story, one that deals with a tragic mistake that is nearly impossible to rectify. The lighthouse is located about 100 miles off the coast of Australia; the time period is the early 20th century. I really enjoyed the story, but found the ending just a little abrupt for me.
Other readers may find they really like–or really dislike–the story’s resolution. I’ll admit to surprise and a wee bit of disappointment, but I’m still glad I read this book and I do recommend it!
