I have just finished writing the discussion points on this book for my Reading Group & would like to recommend it wholeheartedly.
I did not see the film deliberately & now I don't think I want to as this is such a beautifully written book with so many facets to it that a film could not do it justice.
It is perfect for a reading group & I expect a lively discussion.
It is set after WW1 in Australia where a young girl meets a war veteran & moves to a remote island with him as he is the lighthouse keeper.A boat is washed up on their shore with a dead man & a live baby in it.
I am saying no more but this is a very good read & it has stayed with me since I finished it.
It certainly makes you think. A cracking good read.
Spoiler alert below-
You may need tissues - I did!!
