"M.L. 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"""
"Haunting...Stedman draws the reader into her emotionally complex story right from the beginning, with lush descriptions of this savageand beautiful landscape, and vivid characters with whom we can readily empathize. Hers is a stunning and memorable debut."--"Booklist", starred review""
"Irresistible...seductive...a high concept plot that keeps you riveted from the first page."--Sara Nelson, "O", the Oprah magazine
"An extraordinary and heart-rending book about good people, tragic decisions and the beauty found in each of them."--Markus Zusak, author of "The Book Thief"
"M.L. Stedman, a spectacularly sure storyteller, swept me to a remote island nearly a century ago, where a lighthouse keeper and his wife make a choice that shatters many lives, including their own. This is a novel in which justice for one character means another's tragic loss, and we care desperately for both. Reading "The Light Between Oceans" is a total-immersion experience, extraordinarily moving."--Monica Ali, author of "Brick Lane "and" Untold Story"
"The miraculous arrival of a child in the life of a barren couple delivers profound love but also the seeds of destruction. Moral dilemmas don't come more exquisite than the one around which Australian novelist Stedman constructs her debut."--"Kirkus Reviews", starred review
"This heartbreaking debut from M L Stedman is a gem of a book that you'll have trouble putting down"--"Good Housekeeping"
"[Stedman sets] the stage beautifully to allow for a heart-wrenching moral dilemma to play out... Most impressive is the subtle yet profound maturation of Isabel and Tom as characters."--"Publishers Weekly", starred review
"As time passes the harder the decision becomes to undo and the more towering is its impact. This is the story of its terrible consequences. But it is also a description of the extraordinary, sustaining power of a marriage to bind two people together in love, through the most emotionally harrowing circumstances."--Victoria Moore, "The Daily Mail"
"This fine, suspenseful debut explores desperation, morality, and loss, and considers the damaging ways in which we store our private sorrows, and the consequences of such terrible secrets."--"Martha Stewart Whole Living"
