How often does an entire twenty-person book group give a title a thumbs up? Very rarely, but for this story they did. Light Between Oceans is an emotionally complex story of decisions made between a married couple that unbelievably affects the lives of others. This is surprising considering the seclusion of a rocky island they live on, with only the communication to the mainland coming seasonally. The novel has a little bit of everything we love about a good novel – brilliantly described setting, well-developed characters, a bit of history, tragedy and dilemma.
Recommended for adults.
