This début novel came out in hardback last year and I was luckily enough to be sent a copy to read.
A boat washes up on the shore of a remote lighthouse keeper’s island. It holds a dead man and a crying baby. The only two islanders, Tom and his wife Izzy, are about to make a devastating decision. They break the rules and follow their hearts. What happens next will break yours.
It was excellent and is excellent and was a memorable book of 2012. My review can be found here.
Now it is out in paperback and also been chosen as a Summer 2013 Richard and Judy choice it is going to be a memorable book of 2013 as well.
Richard and Judy’s Review – “One of the most beautifully written books either of us has read in a long time. The Light Between Oceans tells the poignant story of a young married couple stationed entirely by themselves on a remote lighthouse off the Australian coast just after WW1. They are deeply in love, but shattered when she miscarries their baby. The extraordinary event that follows is part-tragedy, part miracle, and it will change their lives forever.”
Therefore I am giving away a paperback copy of this book (thank you to the publishers) and if you want the chance to get your hands on a copy then please leave a comment below and I will pick a name out of the hat on the 21 June. Only open to those in the UK, due to postage costs.
