For our next Better Reading Book Club Live we’ll discuss The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman.

1926. Tom Sherbourne is a young lighthouse keeper on a remote island off Western Australia. The only inhabitants of Janus Rock, he and his wife Isabel live a quiet life, cocooned from the rest of the world.  Then one April morning a boat washes ashore carrying a dead man and a crying infant – and the path of the couple’s lives hits an unthinkable crossroads.

Only years later do they discover the devastating consequences of the decision they made that day – as the baby’s real story unfolds …

The Light Between Oceans is one of the most successful Australian novels of recent years. Produced by Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks and directed by Derek Cianfrance, the highly anticipated film stars Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz and is coming out soon!
