What happens when two people who love each other immensely are torn apart by conflicting ethics? Thought-provoking, intense, and thoroughly engrossing.

Captivating and haunting novel about our capacity for love and the toll of war. I was consumed by the story from the first page.

I LOVED this book! Gripping story, and fascinating descriptions of what a lighthouse keeper actually does (or, did). The plot has some mystery, suspense, and emotional highs and lows that can keep one compelled to read to the end.

This story definitely makes you question and think. A tad long but still a great read.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: "Post First World War, Tom seeks isolation with his new bride on a remote island off the coast of Australia in his job as a lighthouse keeper. They struggle unsuccessfully to have a child until finding a boat with a young baby. A deeply moving book about the choices we make and the consequences to live with."

A spell binding book. The characters surely are haunting. This book is a definate page turner. Some could say a romance novel, but that is far fetched. I recommend this book to anyone who loves to read, or someone trying to get started; man, women, boy or girl. This book will truely become apart of your heart.

Wonderful story. Great first novel. Hope to read more from this author. Make sure you keep a tissue handy.

A wonderfully written love story ... It is intense and captivating. Difficult to put down. Brings out the disperate views and personal feelings that motivate two people in love and how it involves an entire community around them also. I would recommend this book to others.

this line also stood out for me!
“You only have to forgive once. To resent, you have to do it all day, every day.”
