I loved this book. It was a very heartbreaking story on so many levels and I found myself very involved with the characters. I found Noah Taylor’s performance disappointing, primarily because so often he would swallow the ends of sentences and it was really difficult to decipher the words even at the highest volume.
This book is a fabulously engaging read, well written & satisfyingly executed. The main setting for the story is an island lighthouse off the south west coast of Western Australia. The physical elements of sea, sky and isolation are integral to the telling of the tale which explores the nature of love relationships and their impact for a lifetime. Against this backdrop of unusual physical isolation the author sets up the occurrence of events to illustrate the profound significance of human attachment.
Narrated by a most tender voice, I cried and couldn't stop wanting to hear more of this story. a young family caught up in a tragedy ,in a small Australian country town. It's a powerful story written and read in a gentle yet thought provoking way. Be warned tissues are a must.

highly recommended this gripping story. Had to hold back the tears at work whilst listening. Once i finished the book i watched the trailer for the movie and cried the whole 5 minutes.
