Product description

Would you accept a chance for happiness even if it wasn't yours to have? This is a story about a lighthouse keeper and his wife, who live on a lonely island with just seagulls, stars and buffeting winds for company. It's about a tiny baby and a dead man in a boat that drifts ashore one April morning, and the apparently harmless decision made that day. More than anything, it's a story about right and wrong, and how sometimes they look the same.

Review quote

"An extraordinary and heart-rending book about good people, tragic decisions, and the beauty found in each of them" -- Markus Zusak, Author Of "The Book Thief" "A love story that is both persuasive and tender" The Sunday Times "A description of the extraordinary, sustaining power of a marriage to bind two people together in love, through the most emotionally harrowing circumstances" Daily Mail "A spectacularly sure storyteller ... Reading The Light Between Oceans is a total-immersion experience, extraordinarily moving." -- Monica Ali, Author Of Brick Lane "What an extraordinary book... as inevitable as Hardy at his most doom-laden. And as unforgettable" Guardian
