The Light Between Oceans: A Novel - M.L. Stedman 3.5/5Read my full review @ opinion: Although, in general, I thought this story was good, I was not as entranced with it as other reviewers have written about it. I definitely thought there were moments that the author focused too much on the "drama" of the event to "prop" up weaker points in the storyline. All in all, the writing in the book was good. I thought the author painted good pictures of the characters and showed readers their insecurities and their weaknesses in vivid detail, but there were moments in this story that it was just so unbelievable that, again, I thought it was done more for dramatic effect versus true to the story.
