Were the reader not left crying and compelled to more vigilantly guard her children, this book could be the ethics textbook at Harvard Law School.
A young Australian trying to escape the memories of his contribution to the deaths and brutality of World War II, becomes a lighthouse keeper on a remote island. Utopia is found for him and his animated bride until several miscarriages extinguish her lifelong dream of a big family.
When a dead man and very live baby wash up on their island they make a decision that will alter the course of the child’s life, and other’s lives, forever.
There are no easy answers in this beautifully written book.
