I was recently recommended this book by a couple of lovely friends and wanted to share it with you. It’s a good one for a book club or to talk with friends about, debating what choice you would have made in the same situation.
It’s set in Australia and is centered around the lives of Tom and Isabel who live on an isolated ‘rock’ off Western Australia, running a light house. One day, after suffering alone through multiple miscarriages and still births Isabelle hears the cries of a baby and finds it alive in a boat…Tom is a man of strong morals and wants to report the baby to the coast immediately, but Isabel believes the baby is a “gift from God,” and convinces him to let them keep it. A decision that will irrevocably change theirs and others lives.
Read it now as it’s being made into a movie by Spielberg’s Dreamworks!
