The Lunch Bunch Talks About Books

We are reading “Light Between Oceans” by M.L. Stedman

 

Between Two Oceans book cover

After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.
Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.

Pick up a copy of the book at the Library.

Today’s library is more important than ever
and your library has become the heart of the community

People come for many reasons: group meeting place, job searching, learning and information, introducing children to reading, cost savings (borrow books, movies and magazines), school readiness, recreation, programs & workshops, self help materials (gardening, parenting, ‘fix it yourself ‘, art/hobby), a quiet spot to read or study, see original art by local artists, tax forms, photocopy and fax, e-mail, job search and more!
