The Plot :

Tom Sherbourne is a young lighthouse keeper on a remote island off Western Australia. The only inhabitants of Janus Rock, he and his wife, Isabel, live a quiet life, cocooned form the rest of the world.

Then one April morning, a boat washes ashore carrying a dead man and a crying infant – and the path of the couple’s lives hits an unthinkable crossroads.

Only years later do they discover the devastating consequences of the decision they made that day – as the baby’s real story unfolds…

Review :

The story is mesmerizing, the details and descriptions are lovely and the characters so endearing. All in all it is an amazing read. It makes you question what is right and wrong. It gives you a look at how our actions can set into motion such a chain reaction and affect so many people around us.

What I loved about the book is how the main premise of the book is about choices that we make. Some are big, some are small but that doesn’t mean they won’t have repercussions that can be so magnified beyond our imaginations. I particularly loved the ending which I found was very satisfying for such an elaborate story. Highly recommended.
