July’s Book Club Book: “The Light Between Oceans”

So, did everyone finish reading “The Light Between Oceans” and have a little time to recover?

All I have to say is that our August book (“The Secret Keeper”) better be happier!

"The Light Between Oceans"

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?
