October Book Discussion - The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman

  • Oct 19, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We will read The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman for our October book.

The description:

Tom Sherbourne is a lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, a tiny island a half day’s boat journey from the coast of Western Australia.  When a baby washes up in a rowboat, he and his young wife Isabel decide to raise the child as their own.  The baby seems like a gift from God, and the couple’s reasoning for keeping her seduces the reader into entering the waters of treacherous morality even as Tom--whose moral code withstood the horrors of World War I--begins to waver.  M. L. Stedman’s vivid characters and gorgeous descriptions of the solitude of Janus Rock and of the unpredictable Australian frontier create a perfect backdrop for the tale of longing, loss, and the overwhelming love for a child that is The Light Between Oceans. 

=================

We usually chat for the first 15-20 minutes before beginning any discussion about the book.

See you there!

    I feel really bad about missing again but I have a friend here from Ontario for the weekend and we are going to be in Jasper on Saturday. I am really sorry. I do hope to make it for the next one.
