When I first began reading The Light Between Oceans, I wondered how 345 pages could be written about two people on a very small island off the coast of Australia. I have to say, as the story progressed, I found it very captivating. When Isabel hears a baby’s cry after the loss of her third baby, she thinks she must be going crazy. When Tom investigates, he finds a small craft washed ashore carrying a dead man and a baby. When one lie leads to another, Isabel and Tom find themselves devastated from the results of their deception.
