Product description

Review

"A beautifully delineated tale of love and loss, right and wrong, and what we will do for the happiness of those most dear."--Tova Beiser "The Boston Globe"

"Elegantly rendered...heart-wrenching...the relationship between Tom and Isabel, in particular, is beautifully drawn."--Elysa Gardner "USA Today"

"Lyrical...Stedman's debut signals a career certain to deliver future treasures."-- "People"

Irresistible...seductive...a high concept plot that keeps you riveted from the first page.--Sara Nelson, O, the Oprah magazine

Told with the authoritative simplicity of a fable...Stedman's intricate descriptions of the craggy Australian coastline and her easy mastery of an old-time provincial vernacular are engrossing. As the couple at the lighthouse are drawn into and increasingly tragic set of consequences, these remote, strange lives are rendered immediate and familiar."--Elysa Gardner "The New Yorker"

"[Stedman sets] the stage beautifully to allow for a heart-wrenching moral dilemma to play out... Most impressive is the subtle yet profound maturation of Isabel and Tom as characters."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A love story that is both persuasive and tender..."--Elizabeth Buchan, The Sunday Times (UK)

"An extraordinary and heart-rending book about good people, tragic decisions and the beauty found in each of them."--Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief

"As time passes the harder the decision becomes to undo and the more towering is its impact. This is the story of its terrible consequences. But it is also a description of the extraordinary, sustaining power of a marriage to bind two people together in love, through the most emotionally harrowing circumstances."--Victoria Moore, The Daily Mail

"Haunting...Stedman draws the reader into her emotionally complex story right from the beginning, with lush descriptions of this savage and beautiful landscape, and vivid characters with whom we can readily empathize. Hers is a stunning and memorable debut."--Booklist, starred review
