Land of Lakes and Volcanoes recently read and reviewed The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s a snippet:

The resolutions to their problems come from deep introspection and a desire to deal with the past when those around them would brush it aside in an effort to move forward. The entire town of Partageuse is gripped by the war, each of them affected so profoundly by events thousands of miles away.

Check out what ww1ha had to say:

I am ambivalent about “The Light Between Oceans,” by M.L. Stedman. I liked most of the story, about a lighthouse keeper off the coast of Australia, and his wife. I liked the lighthouse keeper, Tom Sherbourne, a haunted hero of the Great War. The details of his silent life alone on the island and the precision of his work drew me in.

But I didn’t care for his wife, Isabel, a rich girl from the coastal small town. She wants to pry into memories he has tried to bury.

Check out what Fleur Fisher in her world had to say:

The story was cleverly structured, it was utterly involving, and it asked some searching questions about where the line between right and wrong really fell.

Setting the story in the aftermath of the Great War gave it extra power. A community had come together, suffered losses together, rejected outsiders together, and all of this had such consequences.

She Reads Novels recently read and reviewed The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

The First World War, the long term effects on the men who fought in it and the experiences of the many people who lost their loved ones forms a small but very important part of this novel. I don’t think I’ve ever read anything about Australia’s involvement in the war and so I really liked this aspect of the book.
