Editorial assessment

Amazon best e books of the Month, August 2012: Tom Sherbourne is a lighthouse stayer on Janus Rock, a tiny island a half day’s boat journey from the coast of Western Australia. while a toddler washes up in a rowboat, he and his young wife Isabel come to a decision to boost the kid as their very own. the newborn seems like a present from God, and the couple’s reasoning for staying her seduces the reader into entering the waters of treacherous morality whilst Tom--whose moral code withstood the horrors of world War I--begins to waver. M. L. Stedguy’s vividentification characters and beautiful descriptions of the solitude of Janus Rock and of the unpredictable Australian frontier create a super backdrop for the tale of longing, loss, and the overpowering love for a kid that may be the light among Oceans. --Malissa Kent
