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.

Loved this book! Very well-written and built deep connections with the characters. I felt every emotion - to the point of crying on the airplane while ready it!

Beautifully written first novel. Gripping, heart-wrenching. Suspenseful. Some facets seemed hard to believe.

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