I had never before thought of what life would be like for a lighthouse keeper and his family. Intermingled with a passionate story about love, intrigue and deception is this experience of living the life of isolation in 'The Light Between Oceans'.
I enjoyed the book, it's a good light read and is a perfect accompaniment on holidays, particularly near the beach. It is poignant and soul searching and many times I wondered what I would have done in that situation. The recipe for disaster was evident from page one, and the writing and the intrigue were skillfully worked through.
