Stedman’s The Light Between Oceans is a beautiful novel about isolation and courage in the face of enormous loss. It gets into your heart stealthily, until you stop hoping the characters will make different choices and find you can only watch, transfixed, as every conceivable choice becomes an impossible one. I couldn’t look away from the page and then I couldn’t see it, through tears. It’s a stunning debut. Maile Meloy, author of Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It. .

The Light Between Oceans book. A captivating, beautiful, and stunningly accomplished. M. Stedman's mesmerizing, beautifully written debut novel seduces us into accommodating Isabel's decision to keep this "gift from Go. And we are swept into a story about extraordinarily compelling characters seeking to find their North Star in a world where there is no right answer, where justice for one person is another's tragic loss.

The years-long New York Times bestseller soon to be a major motion picture from Spielberg’s Dreamworks that is “irresistible…seductive…with a high concept plot that keeps you riveted from the first page” (O, The Oprah Magazine).After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.
I expected such a different ending because of the reviews I read on Amazon. I've never posted a review, but I felt a need to after reading those reviews. If you're looking for a feel-good Nicholas Spark book, this won't be it. Don't give a book a poor review because it isn't. A book being a sad book doesn't make it a bad book. Did I cry my eyes out at the end? Yep. I was on vacation on a beautiful beach, and I sobbed like a baby. I think that's a sign of a great writer. The main characters are flawed people who make some bad decisions, but they also make some good decisions. That's life. Who isn't flawed? Who doesn't made good and bad decisions? Some are just more flawed than others. Real life doesn't always end with everyone getting what they want and in this book that's how it goes.I truly thought the writing was wonderful and can't wait for another book by the writer. I highly recommend this if you aren't into fluff pieces.
The storyline is simple. Married couple, isolated, working an important Lighthouse, trying to have, but failing to have, children. A boat washes up in which there is a dead man and a living breathing three month old baby. Despite the unlikely scenario, what follows gave me reason to explore my own logic. What would l have done, felt, experienced, decided under a myriad of events that are both cause, and effect of circumstances. The reading journey is so worth it. The leftover taste in your memory will last a lifetime. The tears of both joy and despair will sit either side of you - to debate, to fight and argue forever. For this is a timeless story that leaves both scar and mark. Read it.
M. L. Stedman's, "The Light Between Oceans," is a riveting page turner of love and loss. It's a heart wrenching, tortured tale of moral integrity, desperation, betrayal, and the choices we make. Like a lighthouse, this story shines light on the dark places within you, where right and wrong blend together and justify the consequences when the human heart is involved. This brilliantly written novel will tear at your heartstrings and stay with you long after you've finished reading it. Read it with a box of Kleenex.

"It's not always plain sailing, even when you've found the right girl. You've got to be in it for the long haul. You never know what's going to happen: you sign up for whatever comes along." — M. L. Stedman, "The Light Between Oceans"

"He struggles to make sense of it—all this love, so bent out of shape, like light through the lens." — M. L. Stedman, "The Light Between Oceans"

"We live with the decisions we make. ... That's what bravery is. Standing by the consequences of your mistakes." — M. L. Stedman, "The Light Between Oceans"

"I can leave myself to rot in the past, spend my time hating people for what happened, ... or I can forgive and forget. ... It is so much less exhausting. You only have to forgive once. To resent, you have to do it all day, every day. You have to keep remembering all the bad things. ... We have a choice. All of us." —M. L. Stedman, "The Light Between Oceans"
This book took a little time to get into but I found it quite haunting in the end. It makes you ask yourself the internal question about how you feel about telling the truth. Do you keep a secret and live with the internal demons or do you clear your conscience to make yourself feel better but hurt everyone around you. I haven't read a book before that explored this particular subject but I thought it was well written and an interesting read.
M.L. Stedman has written a wonderful love story. It's a love story that is complex, multi-layered, and played out by richly developed characters that are believable and realistic. The novel is satisfying in every dimension. It has a great and intriguing plot that catches the reader from the very first chapter and holds one's interest and attention to the very final page. The characters are like people we all know and can relate to. The writing style is personal and mesmerizing. The reader can see into the thoughts and personality of each character. Hardly a word is wasted, and the chapters and page breaks are frequent and appropriate.

I loved every aspect of this book. In fact, it is most likely the best book I have read in several years.

A movie based upon this book is about to be released this spring (2016), and if it is even 50% as good as the book, this will be a movie worthy of Academy Award nominations. If it does not win best picture, then the director or screenplay writer thoroughly botched the production. This story is sure to please on the big screen, and I predict will be every bit as good as The Notebook, or any other love-themed movie.

If you read any book this year, make it this one. You cannot go wrong. You'll thank me for recommending it to you!
