Jamie recommends "The Light Between Oceans"

The Light Between Oceans is the story of a husband and wife who live on an isolated island because of his job as a lighthouse operator.  After several miscarriages, Isabel is desperate for a child. When a rowboat containing a baby and dead man washes ashore, it seems that all of Isabel's prayers for a child have been answered, but what of the child's mother? This story was well-written because it made you feel for all the characters involved. You understand Isabel's yearning for a child, but you understand her husband's sense of moral right and wrong. Overall, this was an engrossing book.
