I knew I was done for as soon as I met the main characters, Izzy (really!??) and Tom. However, despite the UBER depressing story of love, lies, deception and parenting, I truly liked this tale. The details about Australia were compelling, the narration about life as a lighthouse keeper was interesting, the tale of baby Lucy was heart-wrenching and I could not put the book down.
However, I was literally sobbing at the end. I was snorting-alone-on-the-couch-style crying. A bit intense!
I especially loved the tender moments between Tom and Lucy and the description of their beautiful connection. Also, I loved to see how the resolution of the tale worked out. Don't worry, I won't spoil any more!
What did you think? Also, how beautiful was the cover art?
