M.L. Stedman - The Light Between Oceans

review written and read live on show by Maggie Perkovic 31st July 2014.
This is a brilliant book.  Starting in `1918 with an ex soldier moving to an outpost in
Australia to run the lighthouse. Gettng to meet the people in the small town he
sees a place devasted by the loss of their young men in   W.w.1
He meets the daughter of the Headmaster and when they fall in love she
joins him on the Lighthouse. A future of happiness with lots and lots of
children, so she hopes, but tragically as she is still mourning yet another loss,
a small boat with a dead man and a live baby inside washes up on the tiny
island and so starts a mystery. Somewhere may be a mother is looking for
her baby, or is she too dead???The baby is alive and bellowing for food, so
she and her husband look after her until they decide what to do. Their leave is
not due for a while, it is three months before the supply boat calls, so decisions
must be made.   This is a book which will break your hearts (as the blurb says)
and they are not kidding. Totally recommended, but take a hanky for the final
result!!!!Maggie Perkovic.
