In September, Ellen led the book club discussion of The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman.
We enjoyed the book, which delivered a bittersweet story about good people whose lives were affected by war, distance, betrayal, solitude and tragedy. Love and redemption were also on offer, but demanded a price with long-term consequences. A good read; we recommend it.
