The Light Between Oceans
О чем написано в этой книге The Light Between Oceans. Izzy! he yelled, a boat! The door of the ligthhouse clanged in the distance, and Toms tall frame appeared on the gallery as he scanned the island with the binoculars. And – oh cripes! He vanished and re-emerged at ground level. Theres a bloke, but – The figure was motionless, yet the cries still rang out. He hoisted out a woollen bundle: a womans soft lavender cardigan wrapped around a tiny, screaming infant. Tom Sherbourne, released from the horrors of the First World War, is now a lighthouse keeper, cocooned on a remote island with his young wife Izzy, who is content in everything but her failure to have a child. The crying persisted. It is a decision with devastating consequences. One April morning, a boat washes ashore carrying a dead man - and a crying baby. Its a boat all right, Tom declared. Safe from the real world, Tom and Izzy break the rules and follow their hearts.
