Product description

Review

"A love story that is both persuasive and tender" (The Sunday Times)

"An extraordinary book . . . as inevitable as Hardy at his most doom-laden. And as unforgettable" (Guardian)

"A description of the extraordinary, sustaining power of a marriage to bind two people together in love, through the most emotionally harrowing circumstances" (Daily Mail)

"It is not only the plot that it so compelling . . . What makes this wonderful novel stand out is the cast of emotionally fragile characters, all of whom inspire tremendous sympathy in the reader" (Daily Express)

"A moving tale . . . prepare to weep" (New York Times)

"Irresistible . . . seductive . . . a high concept plot that keeps you riveted from the first page" (Oprah Magazine)

"A spectacularly sure storyteller . . . Reading The Light Between Oceans is a total-immersion experience, extraordinarily moving." (Monica Ali, author of BRICK LANE)

"The Light Between Oceans unfurls in small acts, at first feeling slight to touch, then building in emotional substance. Into the spaces between words, Stedman breathes an anxiety and pulsating intensity that roils with the ocean and the lighthouse beacon" (Sydney Morning Herald)

"Book of the Week. Critics are buzzing about The Light Between Oceans, the gripping debut from M L Stedman" (Grazia Magazine)

"The characters are beautifully drawn . . . A completely unique read. ****" (Heat Magazine)

"A moving tale. One of this year's must-reads" (Stylist Magazine)

"Told with the authoritative simplicity of a fable . . . engrossing . . . immediate and familiar" (The New Yorker)

"Mesmerising . . . the sheer passion and poetry of Stedman's prose carries us on a wave of emotion and heartbreak" (Australian Woman's Weekly)

"Pick of the month: The memorable and moving tale of one couple’s search for happiness" (Woman and Home)

"A debut novel that tears at the heart – the last pages had me weeping buckets" (Saga Magazine)

"A haunting story peopled with characters you care about" (Choice Magazine)

"Elegantly rendered . . . heart-wrenching . . . beautifully drawn" (USA Today)

"Lyrical . . . Stedman’s debut signals a career certain to deliver future treasures" (People)

"Stunning and memorable" (Booklist)

"Heart-wrenching" (Publisher's Weekly)

Book Description

The global bestselling debut, now a word-of-mouth classic - a heart-rending story of a lighthouse keeper and his wife who face a life-changing moral dilemma when a baby in a boat washes up on their island.
