The Light Between Oceans

I’m joining a new book club and was supposed to start going in February, but had not gotten far at all in the book before meeting time. So I was on it this time and finished the book 2 weeks before the meeting. It helped that The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman was a great and easy read. It was difficult to put down! It takes place in Australia and features a man who is a lighthouse keeper on a very remote island. He marries a girl from the nearby town and their life on the island takes more turns than you would expect for two people living a very secluded life. The story has elements that are relatable for many people and elements that will tear at your heartstrings. The movie came out last year but a friend recommended not seeing, which I wouldn’t do right after reading it anyway, but it does have a great cast. I highly recommend the book and I’m looking forward to the discussion with my new book club!
