The Light Between Oceans

By M.L. Stedman

World War I veteran and lighthouse keeper Tom Sherbourne and his wife Isabel live an isolated life on Australia's Janus Rock. They long for a child but have suffered two miscarriages and one stillbirth. One day, Isabel hears a baby's cries in the wind, and she and Tom discover a rowboat that has washed ashore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Isabel insists on raising the baby because she's a "gift from God." But a return to the mainland reminds the couple that other people exist in the world, and their decision has messy consequences.
