This book was one of our readers group collections that was read by a number of our readers groups across our libraries in the city. Halton Readers group were the last group to read it, and I received a number of reviews from them this week.
Here’s what they thought of it:-
“I loved this book. I ended up reading until late to find out the ending. I must admit I cried at the last chapter – it was beautifully written and the characters made your heart go out to all of them. You wondered what you would do in such a dilemma. I also found the description of the island and the working of the lighthouse intriguing. The soldiers stories on their return from the war was so sad.”
If you are intrigued and want to read The Light Between the Oceans yourself we have a number of copies of the book available to borrow.
If you are interested in coming along to one of our readers groups a full list can be found on our website.
