I enjoyed the story, but the audiobook version was extremely difficult to hear. The reader's voice was inconsistent and would often become almost a whisper so I couldn't understand what he was saying. I was constantly turning the volume up loud and then down when he spoke in his normal voice. I would rate the audiobook version 1 star and the story 4 stars.

I was so excited to listening to this on CD in my car - it was recommended on a free reading list from the library. Unfortunately the reader was TERRIBLE. I couldn't understand what he was saying half the time because he actually mumbled! :( I had to keep turning the volume up...but it was tedious to try to concentrate, so I'll have to read this title in paper form, I guess.

It was a fairly good story, however the reader was the WORST. This rather ruined it for me. His voice volume jumped around so I was forever adjusting my IPOD volume. I highly recommend that, if you read it, READ it instead of listening.

I am very picky about audiobooks, often not enjoying the readers' voices. I greatly enjoyed this audiobook. The story was lovely and the reader did a wonderful job. Love the Australian accent!

This book is a reminder that life is sometimes hard...and we must live with our mistakes. Great book.

I would get upset with some of the characters while listening to the book, but I needed several kleenex during the last CD.

The unique setting of this book is a lighthouse on Janus Island, which is off the coast of Australia where the Indian and Pacific Oceans meet (hence the title). I loved the details about nature and the weather on this remote outpost. The story is about a young couple (the lightkeeper and his wife) who discover a boat washed up on shore with a dead man and a living baby inside. What would you do if your young wife had had 3 miscarriages and was pining for a baby? A really thought provoking first novel by M. L. Stedman.

What a gem! Stedman's first novel.
Everyone talked about this book. We are all waiting for her to write again!

Well done audio production of a heartbreaking story about choices we make for the family we love.
