The Light Between Oceans – M.L. Stedman


I am a few years behind on this novel from 2012. I saw a preview for the movie that came out last year that made me curious. I still haven’t seen the movie, but I can’t stop thinking about the book. If you have ever wanted to just be alone and forget the rest of the world exists… then you will probably like this book. If you have ever made a bad decision for a really good reason… then you will probably like this book. If you have ever thought of what it would be like to lose a child… then you will definitely love the first half of this book, and you might hate the second half.

In any case, I couldn’t put it down. Has anyone seen the movie? Thumbs up or thunbs down?

(Here is a link to the Goodreads page… I always love how polarized the reviews are… most people loved it, a few people really hated it, one lady was upset because she got a fine from the library… I don’t see how that reflects on the actual story though.)

I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
