The debut of a stunning new voice in fiction-- a novel both heartbreaking and transcendent. After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day's journey from the coast. We are swept into a story about extraordinarily compelling characters seeking to find their North Star in a world where there is no right answer, where justice for one person is another's tragic loss. The Light Between Oceans is exquisite and unforgettable, a deeply moving novel.
