Holiday reading : The Light between Oceans

This brilliant book is a heart breaking read ( I mean boxes of Kleenex).The story is set on Janus Island in Western Australia where Izzy and her husband Tom live. Izzy suffers the loss of three consecutive pregnancies and this tragedy impairs her judgement. She makes some terrible decisions leading to equally terrible and inevitable consequences. The ensuing suffering extends way beyond her isolated life on Janus.

The Light between Oceans will get under your skin, and the dilemmas this book poses will haunt you forever! 

Margaret Steadman has written a master piece as good as Thornbirds and Anna Karenina.
