In 1918, after four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia to take a job as the lighthouse keeper on remote Janus Rock. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes only four times a year and shore leaves are granted every other year at best, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Three years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel is tending the grave of her newly lost infant when she hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up on shore carrying a dead man and a living baby.

I was reading the hard cover version of this book before I headed out on a road trip the last 2 days. I decided to download this audiobook and wow, did it change the dynamics of the story. The narrator did such an incredible job and I thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns of the story. I love how the value of marriage is upheld and cherished in the story.
