Our book will be The Light Between Oceans, by M.L. Stedman.
This huge bestselling novel tells the story of Tom Sherbourne who takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on a remote Australian island. Tom brings with him his new bride, Isabel. Desperately wanting to have children, Isabel one day finds a boat washed up on shore, carrying a dead man and a living baby. Tom wants to report the man and the baby immediately, but Isabel insists that the infant is a “gift from God,” persuading Tom to keep the little girl as their own. Two years later, when they return to the mainland, Tom and Isabel are reminded that there are other people in the world. Every act has its consequences. As one critic writes, “A beautifully delineated tale of love and loss, right and wrong, and what we will do for the happiness of those most dear.”
