“One of the most beautifully written books either of us has read in a long time. The Light Between Oceans tells the poignant story of a young married couple stationed entirely by themselves on a remote lighthouse off the Australian coast just after WW1. They are deeply in love, but shattered when she miscarries their baby. The extraordinary event that follows is part-tragedy, part miracle, and it will change their lives forever.”
