A Great Mother’s Day Read – “The Light Between Oceans”

For any avid fiction reader, this is a book that will satisfy. Set in 1920s Australia, the story touches quite a bit on motherhood. So, even though it’s not a book “about” Mother’s Day, it will touch your mothering heartstrings. I cried as I read the last five or so pages. Tears were unbidden and rolling down my face. I can’t remember the last time that happened.

If you are interested in life as a lighthouse keeper, that will be another bonus for you. The setting is an actual lighthouse off Australia.

Enjoy this riveting (and clean) read. I’d love to hear from you on how you liked it. Anyone else reading anything great?

  1. I’ll have to read it! I just picked up and began to read a motherly book called *The Summer of the Great-Grandmother* by Madeleine L’Engle. It’s a memoir-type book about the last summer the author spends with her elderly and senile mother. So far it is sad, poignant, and full of lovely truth.
