Book Review: The Light Between Oceans

The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This story had me drinking to get through it, as it twisted and ripped at my heart, for I could not put it down. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderfully written this novel is; the prose is beautiful, the plot is heart-wrenching, and the characters so richly developed, you love and hate them as if they are family.

It is rare that I read something that raises the kind of questions within that, if answered, sets me on a new path of self discovery. The mark of great literature is that the reader is changed. It will change you. It will touch you. It will help you have patience with the plights of the human condition—that is life. This is among the best stories I have ever read, and I am thrilled that this is Stedman’s first novel.

It is a beautiful and bitter-sweet story. Read this if you love a great ethical dilemma.

I recommend it with all the fervor I can muster.

Happy Reading,
