The Light Between Oceans
After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia
and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey
from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season
and shore leaves are granted every other year at best, Tom brings a young, bold,
and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth,
the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore
carrying a dead man and a living baby.
Tom, whose records as a lighthouse keeper are meticulous and whose moral principles
have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But
Isabel has taken the tiny baby to her breast. Against Tom’s judgment, they claim
her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the
mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice
has devastated one of them.
There is no right answer, where justice for one person is another’s tragic loss.
The Light Between Oceans is exquisite and unforgettable.
