Staff Reviews


Ahhh, a moral dilemma! A remarkable debut novel with twists and turns
and a roller coaster ride for your emotions. A lighthouse, an isolated
island, a young couple, a boat with a dead man and a living baby washed
ashore… all are part of this engrossing tale. Is the baby a gift from
God to the childless couple? What are the consequences of the decisions
they make? You’ll love this book – it will make you think about truth,
redemption and happiness. And the writing is excellent!

“World War I is over and Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia as a lighthouse keeper on remote Janus Rock. His young bride, Isabel, joins him, and they love their isolated life on Janus. Sadness descends however, as they try unsuccessfully to start a family. A small boat washes ashore carrying a dead man and a beautiful, healthy baby girl whom they make their own, living happily until they go back to the mainland and begin to realize the consequences of their actions. With incredibly visual prose evocative of the time and place, compelling characters, themes of forgiveness and redemption, and a riveting plot that won't let you put the book down, this is a great debut novel.”
