The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman
After four harrowing years on the front lines of World War I, Tom Sherbourne finds solace as a lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, an isolated island outpost off the coast of Australia. He is joined by a young and loving wife, Isabel, whose dream of having a child is drifting heartbreakingly out of reach. When a boat washes up on the remote island carrying a dead body and a crying baby, Isabel embraces the infant as a gift. Against Tom's judgment, they claim her as their own. When Tom and Isabel return to the mainland two years later, the devastating implications of their choice are revealed in this complex tale of longing and loss.
